Instant-Grid is a Knoppix-based live-CD bundled with a pre-configured
grid-environment based on the Globus-Toolkit. One PC started from
this CD becomes the Instant-Grid frontend. It also functions as a PXE
boot-server, allowing further PC in the same local network to boot
the Instant-Grid-environment via network-interface-card. Together
with the frontend these PC automatically form a working test-grid.

How can it be used?
With Instant-Grid you can try out grid-technologies, and develop and
test your own grid-applications. The preconfigured Globus-Toolkit
allows for remote execution and monitoring of arbitrary tasks on all
participating PC, as well as for the parallel use of these PC with
suitable (i.e. MPI-parallelized) software.

Come dire "bring your own cluster".. tutto il resto lo fa
instant-grid. Download della iso al 65%, se riesco a farla partire in
VirtualBox vi dico com'e' :)
