Hi All,

I apologies if this is an idiotic question.  Essentially, I've a complex
Taylor series expansion that keeps running out of memory and as I've
upgraded to Mathematica 7 of late, and we've a few machines idling away, I
was wondering if the parallel stuff could help.

The documentation for Parallel Tools hints that it's only applicable for
numeric problems, but doesn't state that symbolic is out of the question.

At a recent Mathematica demo I went to recently it was suggested that the
parallel architecture didn't exclude all symbolic calculations.  Has anyone
seen any documentation on this?  Or have any experience of it?
