My son asked a good question. He has two computers and he was told there is a way to link them and have them run as one computer. Meaning, if computer A has 1 gig ram and computer B has 1 gig of ram, there is a way to have if look like the computer has 2 gig of ram.

I am not sure if this can be done, but if so, how?

Thank you,

Jim

No. This is not possible with PCs. The best one can do is to "cluster" them so that a third PC will "see" them as one. However, there is no way that it can be configure such that the physical resources of 2 PCs be combined "linearly".

Thank you. I didn't think so and that is what I told my son, but it's good to have my old brain confirmed here.
