Started reading up on make and trying to figure out how to get it to distribute jobs to nodes based on geographic coordinates or dates (instead of C code to compile).

Got Rocks cluster working - yeah! 4 computers (each with 2 CPU's [6 core] and 48GB RAM), Infiniband, 22TB storage (combined 2 x 11 TB RAIDs with GlusterFS). Running gene alignment program that works with make -- and qmake (part of Sun Grid Engine). Took a couple of months stumbling along to configure it and kick it into submission. So cool to see it loaded, running 70 processes.
