Install Mapr and flat file for storage evaluation install question

I'm looking at the installation requirements and I see that the "flat file for storage" is not recommended. 

http://answers.mapr.com/questions/3885/using-flat-file-for-mapr-storage

My question is this, if I had Ubuntu 64 desktop installed (on a DV6500) with 4 gig memory and I upgraded that "old laptop" which is Intel Core Duo CPUT7300 @ 2GHZ x 2 with a new 1TB hdd is it a reasonable assumption that I could get a "single-node cluster" running?

I ask because I see the /opt directory requirements and I was wondering if I could use logical partitions? 

I don't see allot of lab-setup documentation, my goal is to use the hparser tool by informatica and just do some hello-world type scripts

Or is there a well documented script/instructions getting Ubuntu Desktop or Server up and running with lab-evaluating purposes in mind?  Though the process would be slow would mounting an external USB drive for OPT be acceptable and does the "flat file for storage" work?

Can I get some specifics (or sound reccomendations) on what is needed at a minimum for a reliable lab and evaluation environmnet?

Thanks
