Is there any advantage to using linux PC clusters for intensive
crystallography calculations (eg Sharp, solve, SnB, CNS, shelx) over
separate worstations?..Can the programs take advantage of this sort of
Anybody tried?

If not, the only advanatge I can see would be as a central file
server...i.e. RAID (but I don't really know what I'm talking about)
