Sean, the link you provided does a good job of helping someone understand the 
process involved in setting up a cluster, even if it doesn't provide detailed 
information in a "HOW-TO"  like fashion. Then i guess is up to me to get going 
and ask questions where i get stuck.  Maybe do the How-to documentation of my 
own in the process.
