Some universities I think run clusters for teaching purposes so you
might consider investigating them.
I'm afraid though, that you might need to start work on your own
system again. Ask questions to the list - be as specific and give as
much info as you can (post stack traces, and describe the hardware) -
and we will try and help as much as we can. It should not be too hard
to get you running in a day or so. Start by getting it running on a
single machine, then a pseudo distribution and then if you have more
machines, set up a cluster. Don't think you need a big cluster to
'practice on'. I expect we all run on our laptops and small data
before running on a cluster.

You could try the Amazon Elastic MapReduce
This is Hadoop, and costs less than US$1 per hour for a small cluster
- you only pay for what you use.
Alternatively you could use the Amazon EC2 instances and run your own
cluster on their hardware also for similar $. Cloudera provide good
Amazon images to do this.

I have been having lot of problems installing hadoop on my system and I
finally gave up.I was just wondering if I could SSH to a remote hadoop
cluster that is open for developers to practice on ? Is there anything
provided by cloudera ? Please let me know.
Thanks in Advance.
