If you plan on building virtual clusters, then start here.
There is only one significant change: when the Kernel/Boot CD boots, at the "boot:" prompt, you need to type "build" (not "frontend" as in the past releases).
Notes on One of the New Features
- Virtual Clusters Support
If you include the Xen roll, you will now be able to configure virtual clusters using Rocks.
