There are at least a couple of folks out there writing books that should be
available in the (relatively) near future, which cover both HA Linux style
clusters, and HP (Highly Parallel) style clusters. No, I can't say who,

done it and get much of their starting ground from the field.

And the book, when it appears, will at least mention Debian. :)
