Have a look at www.mosix.org for exactly that.

The high-availability projects may also be of some interest. They also try to
create a single system image from several independent machines.

Migrating all processes may sometimes be infeasible... transparently migrating
network connections, shared memory btwn other processes and other IPC
resources will be quiet a challenge.

Process migration with some coperation (checkpointing) from the target
processes would be comparably easier. The University of Wisconsin team employ
checkpointing in their 'Condor' project at www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/.

Good Luck!
