If you do some programming, you might want to look at MPI.
R-extensions for MPI exist  (RMPI).

It all depends a lot on what kind of usage you envisage of your cluster.
Open-PBS is also a good batch system. Maybe you also want to
look at Mosix, which is a modified linux system.

Depending on what your ultimate computing ressources are,
maybe also look at IBM's Globus toolkit.

Parallel programming is fun. The world is inherently parallel!
