I am also a newbie like you but i think it's not hard to build a cluster. 
Just search it on google and you will find many ways of making beowulf 
cluster. But what kind of job will you process on your cluster? I am also 
building a cluster to run namd (a molecular dynamics) and i was suggested 
to use redhat 8 + clustermatic 3.
