  In this paper I present some experiences made in the matter of I/O for Linux
Clustering.  In particular is illustrated the use of the package openMosix, a
balancer of workload for processes running in a cluster of nodes.  I describe
some tests for balancing the load of I/O storage massive processes in a cluster
with four components.  This work is been written for the proceedings of the
workshop Linux cluster: the openMosix approach held at CINECA, Bologna, Italy,
on 28 november 2002.
