Any info, docs about how to setup a SuSE cluster based

I'm going to answer assuming you want a Beowulf high performance cluster,
for the ridiculous reason that that's what I'm doing.
I've got 69 Dell dual processor machines doing bioinformatics.
Is there any mailing list within SuSE regarding this
Might be worthwhile.
Under Yast2 there is no Cluster Selection to easy see
what software comes for
cluster solution. Maybe a good tip for SuSE to add a cluster solution under
The closest they come is in the Yast Control Centre : System
: Editor for /etc/sysconfig files : Network : Distributed System
which has entries for OpenPBS and Sun Grid Engine.
This didn't quite work for me, I had to use the "install.master" scripts.
If you have more nodes than you want to install by hand
I'm working on a system I call cloneboot, which netboots
and copies the master system's disk during bootup...
Otherwise learn autoYaST
