I tend to install the whole Scyld distribution on systems instead of
trying the piecemeal approach. Failing that, I would say that you
probably want all the RPMS we make available. They are all there for
a reason.

Use the 'beosetup' tool to move these nodes from 'unknown' into the
cluster. I'm a command-line die hard myself, but I find 'beosetup'
handy and reasonable.

Naturally, you may edit the text files by hand -- but I suggest trying
the GUI tool out to see exactly what changes are affected in the config
files when you add a new node.
