Doubt it, and AFAIK there aren't any support for distributed computing, (a
bit ironic, seen as we're talking distributed.net) and I can't see where
you could gain any speed over running 5 separate clients on each computer,
as clustering won't make the CPU's themselves any faster.
Just run 5 clients and you should get 5xspeed of one computer, (if they're
the same specs of course).. you might want to look at running a
personalproxy on one of them, to easy administration and give you a bit of
stats if you're like the rest of the stats-geeks here...
