Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Butter a 2 quart shallow baking dish.
Cook cauliflower in a 5 or 6 quart pot of boiling water until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
Drain cauliflower well in a colander and transfer to baking dish.
While cauliflower cooks, melt 2 Tbsp.butter in a 3 ro 4 quart heavy saucepan over moderately low heat and whisk in flour. Cook roux, whisking 3 minutes. Add milk in a slow stream, whisking and bring to a boil, whisking frequently. Reduce heat and simmer sauce, whisking occasionally, 8 minutes.

Coarsely crumble crackers into a bowl. Melt remaining 2 Tbsp. Butter in a small saucepan, then remove from heat and stir in horseradish. Pour over crumbs and toss to coat. Sprinkle crumb topping over cauliflower.
