Submission + - Best Way to Achieve Hardware-Diverse Clustering?

Revotron writes: "I'm a devout Folding@Home contributor — yes, the kind who gets into Work-Unit-pissing-contests with friends — and I have some modest (400Mhz-1.266Ghz) x86 hardware that I'd like to put to use. I've tried running one process per machine (running Linux, of course) — however, my main roadblock is that I don't have the time to manage seven different F@H processes on seven different machines. I was daydreaming and began to wonder how many limbs I'd have to sacrifice to set up a decent and diverse Linux cluster for grid computing applications. Ease-of-use, ease-of-installation and a graphical interface for a master node are all a must. Dost thou have any ideas, faithful readers?"
