6.1. What Plump/OS is

PlumpOS is a CD-based GNU/Linux/openMosix mini-distribution designed to allow users to quickly, or temporarily, add nodes to an openMosix cluster; as I write this in march 2003 the version (release 6.9 RC1) is a 16.7M ISO download.

This chapter is a quick hack up by Peter Willis of a very similar chapter contributed by Jean-David Marrow (who is the author of Clump/OS and inspirer of PlumpOS - props to Jean-David for his fine work on the departed Clump/OS).
