Parallel Computing (Beowulf) and CNS

Our lab is strongly considering purchasing a cluster of ~12 PC with dual PII 450 MHz processors and 256 MB RAM each to configure in a Beowulf cluster running Linux.  Does anyone have experience running this type of system?  Reading over past postings, I have come across people mentioning "possible" configurations, but I have never read where anyone has actually successfully ran CNS over a cluster.  I know that some software, such as Shelx, is made to run on only one CPU.  What about CNS?  I would be very interested in hearing either positive or negative comments from people who have experience running CNS on a Beowulf cluster.
