I am gettin ready to set up a hadoop cluster, starting small but going  
to add pretty quickly.  I am planning on running the following on the  
cluster, hadoop, hdfs, hbase, nutch, and mahout.

So far I have two Dell SC1425 dual processor (2.8 ghz), 4 GB Ram, 2  
1.5 TB Sata drives, on a gigabit switch.

So first off does this seem to be a reasonable way to start, I expect  
to double or triple the number of servers in the first month.

Second do the boxes need RAID or will the HDFS take care of the  

And third as I expand the cluster do all boxes have to be identical  
configs?  If they are not what problems will I run into?

Thanks in advance for the help.
