Is this really True? Using my Ibook to help render

I heard somewhere that you can actually connect your Ibook to your Mac desktop and use the memory and hd resources to help when rendering large files. I am just courious if that's possible and how to go about it. I know how to connect my Ibook for using it as an external hd, but is there more? Can I really use it to help me when I am rendering files?

Thanks for any insight.

As I understand it, the 'render farm' is a feature of the new FCP 5. Don't know about earlier versions.
