Red Hat has been including MPI, PVM, and various other Beowulf bits
since 6.1 or 6.2.

In all honesty, 2.2 might be better on single-processor boxes right
now, at least for most things.  2.4 starts to really win on SMP boxes
pretty quickly.

BTW, if any of you are running 2.4.0, upgrade to 2.4.2.  Disk
performance on 2.4.0 *sucks*.  I haven't re-run the benchmarks on
2.4.2 yet, but it certainly seems faster.
