Which version of distcc are you using?  It's worth using an up-to-date
version (>= 3.0).

When you specify a host usually either in the $DISTCC_HOSTS env variable or

ibaker is right.

Specifically, for each host in your DISTCC_HOSTS environment variable, you
should insert a "/" and then the job limit, immediately after the host name
or IP address.  For example, if your DISTCC_HOSTS was set to
you should change it to ",cpp,lzo".
