Given the cost and ease of setup, CentOS is a great choice, using one of 
the machines as a server and the other as clients. CentOS is very 
robust, and can be configured for one machine to hundreds, so to ear 
mark it as only a Enterprise package is wrong, and no there isn't a 
great deal of setup involved.  With the tools that come with the package 
a working server can easily be configured and running in a afternoon, so 
the task isn't all that tough.  Plus you have the wealth of the CentOS 
community to help if you get in trouble.

That's my nickels worth, you can keep the extra three cents...
