For me too. This was during the early Mosix days (before they went
stupid and closed source on kernel enhancements and then the fabulous
openmosix crew started from the last published version). There was no
shared filespace, only distributed jobs. Each machine booted
independently and was then talking to "mother" who coordinated the job
effort. Mother held the hard drive data as I found no working way to
control file distribution (pre-rsynch days).
