1.3 About this HOWTO

Jacek Radajewski started work on this document in November 1997 and was soon joined by Douglas Eadline. Over a few months the Beowulf HOWTO grew into a large document, and in August 1998 it was split into three documents: Beowulf HOWTO, Beowulf Architecture Design HOWTO, and the Beowulf Installation and Administration HOWTO. Version 1.0.0 of the Beowulf HOWTO was released to the Linux Documentation Project on 11 November 1998. We hope that this is only the beginning of what will become a complete Beowulf Documentation Project.
