I have a 5 node cluster of G4 Xserves and am planning on adding at 
least 8 more g5 nodes to it.  I don't know what your plans for the 
cluster are but I have had a great experience in putting it together.  
I am a scientist and not an IT person and I went from boxes to a 
working cluster in about 6 hours, by myself.  Additionally I am 
administrating the server myself as well.
