so here is the \'problem\'
I have around 16 bare bones (no disk) to my disposal and a pc. My idea was to setup a HPC environment on these pc\'s.
Goal of this HPC is to participate in Rosetta.
can/has this been done.
As far as I know Boinc doesn\'t support HPC :(

so anybody has experience in this?
or a better idea to put these pc\'s to use?

BOINC does not support HPC. Several years ago I played a little bit with Beowolf. But it was not the right for BOINC.

I think a better way is to setup a diskless cluster, if you only would like to use the cluster for BOINC. For example Dotsch/UX has a build in diskless client support to boot and operate several systems from one server over network, or also from a USB stick(for each system).
