Got my openMosix cluster working finally. I made a foolish error of locking ssh. Everytime I ssh'd to a node and ran a program, proccess migration didnt happen because I locked ssh along with everything else. One needs to unlock it so that his/her proccesses are allowed to migrate to other nodes if need be...live and learn. It's a small cluster but it's enough for me to hack around with the source code and make sure my code actually runs.
