Yes, it is possible of course. You could use MOSIX as Jens has pointed out,
however there are several software packages designed for similar tasks.
What comes to my mind is:
1) Distributed computing software such as "Condor". Have a look at the
beowulf mailing list archives, there was a similar discussion.
2) Load balancing queuing/batch systems such as ANTS
3) Parallel software build systems; a parallel "make" that works on
distributed memory machines. There ought to be some implementations around
such as pmake that uses MPI:
