Default Looking for suggestions to improve my multi-computer GIMPS setup

Hello, I am looking for suggestions to improve this setup:

I run mprime on several older computers that I either purchased for very little money, or were given to me. They have no hard drives and share the same screen. I boot them up with Slax (32 bit), a lightweight version of Linux. It runs in text mode only, entirely in memory. I use SSH to access the computers remotely, and rsync to run a nightly backup of the gimps directory in case of a power failure. I have them all on battery backups.
