There are a number of different models of distributed computing available.
You might find playing around with the eff-bot's xmlrpclib module (check
www.pythonware.com) a relatively painless way to experiment with the remote
procedure call model. I saw something posted recently about an
implementation of a tuple space interface for Python as well. Check out
You'll find that a bit more complicated to get started with, but may in the
long run provide a better computational model (depends on what you're really
Finally, there is a Python interface to PVM. Check out
