its actually easier if you use one os you know how to work with that way.
the os doesnt need to be unique for each node, but  you want the slave nodes
to have as much ram as possible. also you will need to use pxe to boot off
the master node as well as tftp to transfer the information from master to
slaves. when goign diskless all information on slaves is stored in ram. then
once you power them off if im not mistaken any data is sent back to the
master for storage
