Post Render Farm, IT HAZ BEGUN!

I have been wanting to have a render farm for a while now and i found out how i can do it now, i am going to be getting 10x Dell PowerEdge SC1425 and a network switch and a rack cabinet. All under £1000. It comes to about £700 but i still need to think about storage whether i want 30GB SSDs etc or what OS to get etc. Its not going to be turned on 24/7 it will be more getting turned on when i need it. Since it wont be getting connected to the internet im thinking of just cloning my windows vista to it and installing cinema 4d net render, and if that doesn't work ill use a linux distro with a wine setup which will take up less storage saving money on ssds. Since the distro i have in mind only takes up about 1GB im thinking of just getting high end usb flash drives for each of them. And also its not going to be sitting on my deskso i dont really care about noise or speed to boot etc
