Advice On Server-Client Application Design

I've been tasked with developing an application that will have
a server program providing portions of data to be processed by
multiple client programs running on separate systems across a
possible mix of high and low speed networks (as of yet no plans
to be run across the internet). My boss suggested modeling it
after the grid run internet SETI program.

I've looked into grid programming and was a little overwhelmed.
Currently I'm looking into remoting but most of the examples
are console based and this needs to have a forms interface for
both the server and client programs. Also, none of the samples
are quite what I need.

Are there any other technologies that would be better for this?

Any advice, examples, samples, tutorials, etc. would be helpful
and much appreciated.
