Hello

MPI is a way to render faster but not the only one. It's fine when you 
already have an MPI farm.

If it's something from scratch, maybe you should look at 
http://www.dynebolic.org/ : the cluster way.
OpenMosix is another cluster manager, but not maintened anymore. 
http://openmosix.sourceforge.net/

By the way, "recent" achievements on P2P networks and SMP makes me wondering 
about a P2P rewrite for POV.
Just connect your PCs, let them talk and work, and get everything faster... 
For POV 5 ?

Regards,
 Luc H.
