ZDnet reports "An Australian security firm is about to launch a clustered Linux
distribution that aims to utilize the unused nightly processing power
of desktop PCs. Dubbed CHAOS,
the software is able to remotely boot a computer and run it on Linux
without affecting the local hard disk. With enough PCs, this has the
potential of creating a
distributed supercomputer."

Now, I like to know how it does that. Does it use bootip or is it a
CD-rom based filesystem ? The reason I want to know is, if you read
that paragraph again, it sure sounds like one hell of a virus.
