Default How can i set up a personal grid or cluster?

I've been doing alot of research, but i can't find anyway, to set up a grid or a cluster in windows 7. There's no "how to's" there's just a bunch of information about what it is.. and i know what it is, i want to know how to do it... can anyone tell me how i could do this?

I just have 2 pc's, and they're nothing special... so, i figured i could share the system resources of one while the other is in use...

You can only run a Cluster/Grid PC System on operating systems or software designed to be used on a Cluster/Grid PC System. Windows 7 out of the box doesnt support Grid/Cluster computing (As far as i know).

You can do it with certain applications (notably Video Editing & 3D Rendering applications) - However, as Neodude has already said, I don't think Windows 7 natively supports clustering.
