using 2 computers

So, I'm planning to use pd in a performance.
The idea was to use 2 laptops running pd under linux. However, one of the
laptops seems to be quite useless as it has no sound input nor output
(exept for a built -in mic and speakers...) so I was wondering if using
them networked through ethernet would allow me to approximate something of
dual processor nature. Haven't experimented with it as we don't yet have
ethernet cards. I would appreciate any ideas in this repect. I'm mainly
intersted to know what kind and how much data would I be able to exchange
between the 2 computers over a (hopefully) 1000baseT ethernet card.
Also, relating to the running of pd under root. I've tried to run it as a
user and it works fine except for clickes (and obviously I'm not the only
one that has noticed it) and I've noticed the same type of clicks when I
use MixViews to play large soundfiles. Running audio software as root
doesn't seem to have the same side-effect. How can I optimize it?
Obviously, I still don't understand the concept behind running pd (or
other software) under root vs. user...
