I set a cluster up last year and my husband set up a bigger one at his
place of employment this past spring (and will likely set up a third next
year).  We've been toying with the idea of putting a FAQ up on my website
for the biologically inclined who want (or  think they want) a cluster.
The targetted audience is an academic setting - based on both of our
experiences.  The focus of the FAQ would be on all the planning questions
that one should be asking... e.g., once i buy the system, who will look
after it?  who will pay for upgrades?  where will the beast go?  etc.

I haven't put this into full gear yet... would this be as useful as I
think it would?
