Yes, I believe I will need to do this.  I'm thinking of obtaining a new 2GHz
P4 machine as the main testing machine and then seeing what resources I can
pilfer of other machines that happen to be available at the time.

Could you possibly provide some feedback on the questions included I the
paragraph below?  Most importantly I need to know if the results files will
all come back to the controlling machine.
