I'll just chime in with my own $.02 ...

Diskless is fine - the hardest part will be simply building the  
cluster in a well managed way, SGE will be pretty trivial. Steve's  
unicluster suggestion is not a bad idea if you've never build diskless  
systems before.

A current project I'm on consists of 1,024 Nehalem CPUs in 124  
diskless HP blades. SGE is not even a concern as it normally runs  
beautifully over a NFS mount.

You'll want a speedy and robust fileserver of course.
