Re^2: How to use adjoining/remote computer's resources to share my program load?

Siddheshwar Chopra

Dear Sir,
As suggested by you, I have read the MPI BINDINGS and made the necessary changes to my SMP system too. I feel I feel it is tough to get Gigabit Ethernet, so I am planning to connect 3 computers (of mine) through INTRANET. Can you suggest me how to go for it?
