netrender & cluster settings

Hi ..

one more small query ..

If we want a network of comps all running df .. to participate in a network render .. what should be the path settings .. in terms of unc folders or mapped drives .. which folder should be mapped & where .. should it be done only on the master machine or on the slave machine as well .. kindly advise similar settings for clustering ..

lets us take a small example

let us say 4 machine participate in the network .. with names like mach01, mach02, mach03, mach04 .. all of them have df installed on d:\program files\df r4 .. on their respective machines .. what path settings in the preferences should be changed to support all of them in network rendering and what settings for clustering ..

ps - any machine should be capable of becoming a master ..

which folders need to be mapped network drive ?

kindly explain in detail ..

thanks mike_sul
