In case anyone is interested. Though it is often more talked about in 
the Mac OS X community radmind is an excellent tool for managing 
filesystems on solaris, *BSD, Mac OS X and linux. It's available in the 
FreeBSD ports collection and I've been using it to manage servers and 
desktops with great success for about 4 months now.

Mac Synergy
Presented by Adam Scinto of Apple Computer: Xgrid turns a group of Macs 
into a supercomputer, so they can work on problems greater than each 
individually could solve. Using state of the art technology like 
Rendezvous and based on public license software like BEEP,  Xgrid 
brings to clustering Apple's famous ease of use and remarkable 
technology to make clustering more accessible and more powerful. During 
our session, we will examine the technology behind Xgrid and 
demonstrate how to combine your OS X hardware in a lab or even a whole 
building into a powerful supercomputer.

Managing Clusters with Radmind
Wesley Craig and Patrick McNeal, developers on the University of 
Michigan's Radmind project, will discuss how Radmind can be leveraged 
to simplify the deployment and maintenance of computer clusters 
throughout their life cycle, including installation, updating and 
verification.  Managing both dedicated computer nodes and cycle 
scavenging systems such as Xgrid, condor and pbs will be covered along 
with new radmind features and best practice suggestions.
