Yes, there are tons of cluster solutions out there, and you should definitely check out the excellent documentation there was out there for Mosix. That software has been brought into other kernel projects at this point, and is available as modules or compile-ins. Just refer to the kernel documentation first and consider the cluster management software independently from Ubuntu. You are welcome of course, to use Ubuntu forums to help flesh out the cluster documentation you yourself happen to need.

Be sure to make economic use of electricity, and to call processors CPUs or processors, not cores (which is a precise term for an almost-independent CPU; there is more to a 2-260 core CPU than just those cores!)

I do not like Ubuntu 11.10 can I go back to Ubuntu 10.10

Unfortunately, there is no "downgrade" path. The only way around it, is to re-install the version you want only after formatting your hard drive. Otherwise if it is only the desktop look that you are after, there are ways to get it to look and act like that of 10.10.
To get the classic Ubuntu interface:
First click the little screen icon top right.
Click System Settings at the bottom.
Then on the left hand side of the Control Center click System
Then Click Login Screen
Then click Unlock and put your password in.
At the bottom you can select Ubuntu Classic as your default session.
Close it and reboot.

I'vre downloaded Ubuntu onto a USB stick but when I double click on it it tells me Windows cannot open this file and needs to go online to find.....

You have to boot from the key to get Ubuntu to work. Turn the computer off and plug the USB key in. Then turn on the computer again.

If everything was good you'll see Ubuntu.

If not you need to change your bios settings so your computer tries to boot from USB or you need to remake your Ubuntu USB key.

Bios settings depend on what computer you have, you should see something flash quickly on the screen durnin start up saying press del or esc to change bios.

To remake your USB download the Ubuntu you need and this PROGRAM .
Just follow the prompts.

Feel free to contact me if you need further help.

I have original win Xp Home ed. but it is on recovery disk. I changed my motherboard and i could not install my windows from that disk. I want seperate cd of Win XP Home edition.

I'm afraid its a case of buying one. I'd try ebay, the latest version is SP3.

Alternatively you could download and install Ubuntu. Its a free operating system. Google Ubuntu, all instructions are there on the Ubuntu website.

Installing ubuntu on Raid 0

Ok I have Duo booted ubuntu a couple of times now. When you were partitioning did you use the automatic or he manual? Since you have two hard disks, I will assume you use a desktop and you know how to take it apart. So, if you did automatics the bestt I can tell you is to swith your hard drives around physically and if that fails try switching g the boot menu order. If you used manual partitioning then when you were creating the ext3 partition you did not type / in the text box labeled Moint Point (that's the best I can help you) I hope this has fixed your problem. GO UBUNTU

Ubuntu sound problem

Hi Josh

First of all check system setting.

It seems like your modules are not loaded, if you just installed, I recommend you to
re-install Ubuntu, if this is not the case, try to run -

sudo apt-get -f install

If everything fails, try this - sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start
