I sure hope that that is not the cluster suite that comes with Redhat
Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 2.1

The reason I say so is that on a cluster with shared storage over SCSI
when I upgraded the RHEL 2.1 kernel the machines became unbootable. 
Something about the RHEL 2.1 upgrade kernels not containing the
megaraid2 kernel module.  Anyways the machines would not boot and I
commited the newbie mistake of uninstalling the old kernel in the hope
that the new kernel would work.  I had to reinstall one of the cluster
members.   You know the saying:  person that repeats the same steps
hoping to get different results -> windows user.

If you do not want to pay for RHEL 3 or 4 you can go with CENTOS.  If
you go with RHEL I recommend paying for support from RedHat as time
can be lost debugging the cluster.
