I've made the last release of Tablix on Morphix with iBuild
(http://ibuild.livecd.net). It is a user-friendly tool for building live
CDs.

I can send you my configuration file (iBuild uses XML files to describe
software that should go on the CD - I hope it is still compatible with
the current version of iBuild). You will need to modify it to use the
"tablix2" packages instead of "tablix" from the Debian repository.

For security reasons PVM over public networks is not advisable (it
practically allows any one to run anything on your machine). Also if
your machines are behind any kind of a firewall it is quite complicated
to set up proper forwarding of UDP packets (I've tried that once and
could not figure it out).
