[PLUG] diskless linux


I was hoping to get feedback from linux experts particulary those of you who
have experience with linux clusters.  My question is regarding hard drives.  Is
it wise  building a cluster with diskless nodes?  Each nodes loads a kernel from
a drive and does a bootp or similar ip acquirement, etc.

I understand linux requires a physical space for memory swapping even with a
large memory bank (2 Gb).  Can this be avoided?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks, jano
