awhile back I setup a little test OSCAR cluster, which used CentOS, and 
found it quite nicely packaged and easy to deploy with a rich set of 
tools...   but I have no idea where its gone since (and this was years ago)

IIRC (again, this was years ago), you setup Oscar on a master server 
running CentOS with a pile of slaves 'behind' it, then net boot up the 
slaves and they install themselves off the master, and run whatever MPI 
applications you have for the cluster, deployed and managed by the 
master.   Ganglia was used to monitor the whole mess.   It had a bunch 
of other stuff that I forget what all, as basically we decided it wasn't 
suitable for where we were going so put it aside.

ah, here's the project webpile...
