 I am looking for a program that will execute a single command and distribute the processing load over many systems on a NIS+ (or similar) network.  I have no idea that such a package exists, if one doesn't that is the answer I need.  I have read about how many smaller computers were combined to solve a complex scientific problem.  This is what I am looking for.
Thanks

Hi,              

   I'm affraid no such thing exist, in order to do that, you'll have to code it in the application itself. But it has been done
before on various graphical apps, scientific and more recently
a crack ring to break the Netscape SSL key. However, the source
code is not available for us to consult. Some operations could
be parralelize and others not and it's really speficific to the
apps. itself.

Good luck,
Minh Lai
