I have a spare computer that has Ubuntu server edition (10.04.1) installed on it and was wonder if there was a way to use my server to help processes data on my Ubuntu desktop (same release). I would like to share any heavy-processor functions with my server to ease the load on my desktop. Does anyone know of a good/easy way to do this? They're connected on the same network through a router. I'll list what I think may be relative components for each one below.
Desktop - Intel core 2 quad @ 2.83Ghz
Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller (rev b0)
Server - Pentium 4 @ 2.8Ghz with hyper-threading
Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 02)
