I have a lot of slow machines, 400 - 1000Mhz systems littered around the house, I have recently set 4 of them up on my wireless LAN. Its working like a dream... means I can render on the slaves and keep modelling on the hub without things crashing and dying.

Create a copy of your Lightwave8 install, then share the Content, Program, Plugin, Config, Command directories the same on ALL machines, then refer to these in all config and scene set up you do from then on, even on the hub machine. It all then goes nice and smooth.

The only problems I have run into are...

- If the scene fails to load, the hub dies.
- If you forget to save the scene after setting save path prior to rendering, files won`t save in the right place.
- You can't do animations, just static frames :(

Thanks to all for tips/hints and tutorials, couldn`t do it without them!
