Re: [Linux-cluster] RedHat Cluster suite installation

GFS 6.1 for RHEL 4 shipped two weeks ago:

http://www.redhat.com/software/rha/gfs/ (General info page)
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/csgfs/  (Documentation Pages)

GFS 6.1 can indeed run in 2 node configurations.  It includes the DLM (Distributed Lock Manager) which "spreads" the locking across all GFS nodes w/o separate lock servers. Though DLM is now the default, GULM remains as an alternative lock manager.

You can with RHEL4 and http://sources.redhat.com/cluster/ . I believe 
the official (supported) version was released recently but I can't find 
the PR stuff yet.
