Render with multiple machines

I know this is possible with Shake. But here's what I've got: a 15 in Powerbook with OSX, and an old eMac running Yellow Dog Linux.
I was wondering how I would go about setting up the eMac with YDL to help with Shake rendering.
I suppose I should delve into the manual, but figured I'd ask anyway.

Shake only runs on x86 linux, not powerpc. You have to reinstall OSX to run Shake. Also OSX render lics are free, where linux ones are $1900 each.

ok thanks.

If I set up the eMac to dual boot YDL and OSX, could I be in YDL and still be able to render with the comp, or would it have to be booted into OSX??

How are you running shake under YDL?

I'm not yet, I'm just searching for all the info I can before I try anything set up. Plus I'm not trying to run all of Shake through YDL, I just want to get qmaster to work, so could render with the YDL machine. I don't even know if this is possible but I'd like to try and figure it out. It'd be very helpful...

I said in my earlier post that Shake only runs on linux under x86, not PowerPC. Which is why I asked how you are going to run shake under YDL because you seemed to have ignored my previous statement. Shake gui, shake nongui, qmaster, it doesn't matter, none of them run under linux on powerpc.

well looks like I might be setting my eMac back into being a dual boot again....
