We have setup one with 16 nodes using Slackware, and using it for CFD work. You need to set up a basic linux network, NFS, NIS, DNS. Finally you need to set up MPI or PVM. We chose MPI. It's working great.

If you have your mahines and your network up and running you already have a cluster - just install MPI and start distributing your jobs across your machines. To get good scaling all machines should preferably be on the same switch.
