                      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.
