Instant-Grid is a Knoppix-based live-CD bundled with a pre-configured grid environment based on the Globus Toolkit. One PC started from this CD becomes the Instant-Grid frontend. It also functions as a PXE boot-server, allowing other PCs in the same local network to boot the Instant-Grid environment. Together with the frontend, these PCs automatically form a working test grid. Like with the original Knoppix, the existing configuration of the participating PC is not touched (except maybe for enabling the PXE boot-option), and remains instantly available by a simple reboot.
