Installation - prelude

Where to install - on a shared disk only one installation for the whole cluster a) make local AFS server – NOT recommended advantage – users can use afs clients to access their code and disadvantaged could be quite unstable, not worth the trouble b) on NFS disk - preferred stable easier for maintenance usually available on most of the clusters Installation can be done from one computer with access to AFS and distributed to the whole cluster via NFS.
