Computing Cluster

Is it possible to have multiple 8 Gig machines on 64-bit Fedora clustered together for distributed computation? I'm talking about simulating blackholes which requires extensive number crunching and computing power. How would I set this up? I saw an article of some person using a couple Playstation 3s running Linux to do some high computing... I need the ability to run these high-end simulations...

Possible. You may want to use RHEL or CentOS instead because they have a cluster suite, however this doesn't seem to have much distributed computing support. For this perhaps Condor will help.

Certainly the x86_64 versions of all of the above can support 8 GB RAM.
