Tom,

I don't think that cow has been maintained in a while.  I tried to  
get it running over a year ago and had no luck.  The closest thing to  
cow right now are the parallel capabilities in IPython.  There are a  
couple of presentations about this on the IPython homepage:

http://ipython.scipy.org/

The parallel parts of IPython (which we are calling the "IPython  
Kernel") are still under heavy development.  But the current version  
does work very well.  However, the kernel stuff is not packaged with  
the standard IPython.  We have a separate development branch where  
the parallel stuff is living.  You can check it out from our  
subversion repository:

svn co http://ipython.scipy.org/svn/ipython/ipython/branches/chainsaw  
ipython1

We are calling this ipython1, as the kernel will eventually become  
the core of ipython for the version 1.0 release.  You can find  
install details and documentation in the INSTALL and README files.

It does require Zope interface, Twisted and the current release of  
IPython, but those details are given in the INSTALL file.

Sorry there is no web presence for this stuff yet.  We are completely  
focused on development right now.

Cheers,

Brian
