Check out these sites. From what i know, you can only do functional clucsters with Linux. The Xp Clustering is more of a Load balancing thing. Unless that is what you are looking for...

Good Luck

Here is a good FAQ on the topic of Beowulfs. I'm not sure on what disto they can be run from, but if you look around, there is a ton of info on the topic.
http://www.canonical.org/~kragen/beowulf-faq.txt
Another good article
http://www.zdnetindia.com/biztech/se...ies/19539.html
This one covers most of it...
http://www.zdnetindia.com/biztech/se...ies/19538.html

Load-balancing is basically a multipoint-failover system, meant for fault-tolerance and failure-avoidance, and is not a computational cluster (ie Parallel Processing). For that, you need Unix, or a Unix-like platform, like Linux.
Hope that helps...

There is a windows "clustering" only available through XP Pro and 2003 server I believe. if that is what you are asking. It is a load balance type cluster, so you don't get the process control like with Beowulfs.
