Is there a flavour of lswn out there that will support pvm?

It would be neat to be able to render on a virtual huge machine.

Also...

Is there a way to farm out your frames to friends via the net so you can use there hardware while they sleep?

LWSN is not open source so I doubt if you would find a version compiled with PVM libraries. Yes a distributed computing "screen saver" rendering engine would be a fantastic use of idle resources.
