The solutionyou proably want is opemosix (cluster of all your client pcs). It's a
great solution in the theory of it. But putting it in practice has been a test.

>> let a client boot from it. The client will run everything
>> locally just like a CD boot. The main thing you need on the
>> client is a faster CPU and more RAM than for a thin client,
>> but if you are using PC's that used to run Win98, this should
>> work fine and scale to more clients per server.
