it works the same as before...the easiest way taking a conserver.cf file
and distributing it to all the conserver hosts.  there's an example in
conserver.cf/samples/average-distributed.cf (which builds on others in
there).  the only "trick" is to have the 'master' for each console
defined appropriately.  you can almost take the two conserver.cf files
you have now and just cat them together and distribute that (in some
cases that'll "just work", for others not quite so - depends on how you
set things up).
