Hello.
Can SETI@Home take advantage of my Linux Cluster?

Currently offline.
When it was working/connected It runs ClusterKnoppix.
Currently has about 30 machines, Pentium's, Celerons, Athlons, Durons and Semprons from 75Mhz to 2.5 Ghz.

Thanks

You bet ya!
Check your ditro of choice for the BOINC program. Its the frontend for several distributed computer programs including SETI.
If its not in your distro then access the SETI home page http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/) with a linux machine. Under the blue banner on the left side you'll see "download" in orange letters. Click on that and it will take you to the correct page to download the BOINC program for Linux.
For installation help just do a search on this (the linux) forum. Once installed then you'll have to 'attach' to the project. Again, info can be found by searching the linux forum.
The 75MHZ machines might be too slow though. Its been a long time since I ran my Pentium 75!

It should be noted that BOINC only supports individual machines connected via network, not machines clustered together into one big virtual computer.
