AoE (ATA over Ethernet) would be the easiest route to do it. Please let
the list know your comfort level when playing via command line and I (or
someone else) would be happy to write a short tutorial on how to get
going with it.

Are you looking for a way to "Share" a drive so many systems can read
and write to it at once? Or will most systems be accessing the shared
disk in a read only fashion?

AoE + ocfs2 come stock in newer kernels, setup is rather simple and its
much faster than NFS. This allows for many systems to share (read and
write) to a single partition at once. 

If more of a read only configuration, AoE would suffice. Either way
you're looking at less than 40 minutes to get it going even without much
prior experience.
