A business by me is going out of business and they are getting rid of 3 G5 xserve cluster nodes. I am going to start doing some heavy processor hungry rendering on my Mac Pro 8 core now. Not wanting to use up all my processor power on my mac pro I thought about setting up a Mac cluster computer. But im worried about the fact that the cluster Nodes are G5's and and my Mac pro is Intel based and am worried about compatibility issues. Could I set up a cluster computer using this hardware? And could i set it up using only ethernet cables? (using an ethernet switch). Im new to this type of thing an understand that it will be a very hard thing to accomplish since i have no experience in this type of thing. And i just have one last question, Are there any Apps or software that would make this task easier for me to accomplish?



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
