You can get a master/slave combo VMWare VM at http://www.cloudera.com./ They also have packages for Ubuntu, I made an at-home cluster of VMs with one master and a slave that I can replicate.

Somewhere shortly after Fedora 10 came out there was a kernel update, and my Sierra Wireless 3g card stopped working. It stopped working on Ubuntu about the same time, and there were bug reports in both places, but no fixes. Fedora 11 and Ubuntu 9.04 didn't fix it, but with Fedora 12 it works again. I'm typing this from a VMWare running the Fedora 12 Live ISO and the 3g in a USB port.
