Just to be clear:
By cluster, do you mean multiple hosts working on some large computational
problem with message passing, may MPI?    You might check in the ports
to see if there is something to support this sort of thing.  I haven't 
looked, but wouldn't be real surprised.

Go to:

and do some fishing.   Then do some Googling or other searches.

Sounds interesting.
Good luck,
