The Cobbler Provisioning System

If you've ever had to take a pile of computers and turn them into working
systems, you already know how much work there is from unpacking them to
putting them into production. Various tools have been created to
automate portions of the process, such as Kickstart, but still leave a
lot of work to the person installing the systems. Cobbler aims to make
this process easier and less error-prone by providing a PXE boot server
and tools such as Koan, to allow you a template-based system to provision
new systems, whether physical or virtual. Subhendu Ghosh will take us on
a walkthrough of Cobbler so you can see how easy it can be.

Using Rocks to build Linux Clusters

There are now many options for creating Linux clusters; clustering
remains one of the hottest applications for Linux today. Along with an
overview of the popular clustering software, we will focus on the Rocks
package sponsored by the National Science Foundation, from basic
installation to running jobs. Robert Rusinko will be show us the ins and
outs of setting up clusters using Rocks, and give us a peek at the Rocks
5.0 (Beta) using Xen.
