	I am trying to use a k12ltsp along with openmosix. I have used the
4.0 cd for initial instalation and the the openmosix-2.4.22-openmosix3 rpm 
for patching.

	Everything works fine for both ltsp+openmosix server and ltsp
clients . 
Now i wanted to make also the ltsp thin clients nodes of openmosix server. 
For that i tryed to recompile the clients kernel but couldn't manage to 
find a kernel configuration suitable for building the clients kernel , can 
you give me any help or point me to the right direction. I new onto kernel 
compilation so it can also be a result of inexperience. Should i use a 
expecif kernel for the clients, and which configuration file should i use?

Thanks in advance

I am also very interested in combining openmosix and K12LTSP to create an
auto-assimilating cluster.
I am pretty new to this and have not got as far as you, but I would be very
interested in knowing what you have done so far.
I think the concept that each new thin client adds it's spare processing
cycles and memory to the cluster is a great idea. Theoretically the server
should never run out of resources. The set-up would require a very strong
network infrastructure though.

Regards & good luck,
