I've already described how to setup a Windows HPC Server for development. Before you dive into developing for the cluster, if you are new to this it is probably a good idea to learn the basics by reading some overview material. Below is a list of links.

Direct Links to Windows HPC content
1. Windows HPC Server 2008 Overview Datasheet (4 page pdf).

2. Windows HPC Server 2008 Technical Overview (32 page doc).

3. Windows HPC Server 2008 Getting Started Guide (26 page doc) which actually is available online as part of the TechNet technical library section on Windows HPC Server 2008, which includes much more useful data.
