Default create cluster in windows xp

hey,

i got a bunch of old boxes from my dads office, mostly windows 2000/xp. i have my main computer, running xp pro, and i want to create a small cluster so all the older ones will serve the xp pro one. Anyone know how to do this? I have Ubuntu also, if i need to use linux.

Thanks

Nick

You could set up xp pro as the server and network the others to it. Network hubs are pretty cheap as is network pci cards.
