Linux live-cd for distributed computing projects?

Linux live-cd for distributed computing projects?

I have had this dream for years now... but sadly, even to this day, it remains just a dream.

"Dotsch/UX is one.

Dotsch/UX - A USB/Diskless/Harddisk
BOINC Ubuntu Linux Distribution
The purpose is to make a Linux
distribution for BOINC which easily
installs and boot from a USB stick,
hard disk and from diskless clients
and also has some interfaces to setup
the diskless server and the clients
BOINC Client : The BOINC client comes
pre installed and would be started as
daemon and would be monitored and kept
alive from this daemon. Dotsch/UX 1.0
includes the BOINC client 6.2.15.
Dotsch/UX 1.1 includes the BOINC
client 6.4.5 for CUDA support."

"Have you looked at openMosix?
It seems to have closed -- no more updates.
There is ClusterKnoppix based on the openMosix kernel (uh, also discontinued).
And, there is ParallelKnoppix (DistroWatch link).

Here is a LiveCD list for Clustering.
some may be discontinued as we see above.

You may also want to look at

Ubuntu Clustering and Easy Ubuntu Clustering pages.
