The minimum number of nodes required to setup a fully functional lustre
file system is 1. Lustre itself is designed to run across hundreds /
thousands of nodes, so your scale will depend on your project and hardware

The most basic setup you can get away with is simply to install all lustre
server RPM's (available from intel) as well as the test suite, within the
test suite there is a script called llmount.sh this will generate a simple,
loop device based single node file system you can play around with.

If you want to explore more complicated setup, you could start with a kvm
based cluster: http://wiki.lustre.org/KVM_Quick_Start_Guide

Good luck.
