Let me kick off with a few points, most likely many will enhance that with 
more points

a) having a compiled driver into the kernel of the network card in question
    this is by far the hardest part.
b) pdsh installed at all machines and naming of machines in a logical manner
c) diskless operation at nodes other than the masternode, using local disk 
only as 'scratch'
d) because A usually goes wrong the capability to easily compile a vanilla 
kernel inside the distribution

D is by far most important
