You can, but the software you want to run will have to support distributed operation on multiple computers. Ideally you would also need a dedicated Gigabit ethernet connection between the two computers. One package that does support such operation is Carrara ray tracing software. Another possibility is looking into building a Beowulf cluster using Linux.

But for most everyday programs the answer is "No".

Another thought is to turn the unused PC into a NAS server using FreeNAS.

What you mean is you want to use something like the sun grid engine now the Oracle grid engine.

That and other cluster applications allow some parallel processing. Normally it is geared to one of two schemes.

We use a computer to pass off tasks to a bank of computers. Depending on site it may be from 20 to 80 computer that would take a task and run it and return it to the server.

The other way is to run the processors together on the same task. Some cluster software can do that but the tasks need to be special tasks written for the process and task.

You can not easily run a normal windows tasks on two computers.

Many banks and places like air control use a special computer that has many processors and they are there for redundancy. Each result is checked and then rechecked. That is really a third type.
