You should install a Linux distribution on the servers. Debian has proved itself appropriate and the documentation here is based on Debian. So unless you are a very adventureous spirit with too much time on your hands, you should stick to Debian.

Install Debian in a minimal version.

Notice that polyphemus has two NICs while majorana has three. The 100 Mbit NICs connects the servers to the world, so configure those if you do a network install.

Post installation

Enable the Gigabit Ethernet NICs in:

/etc/network/interfaces
Personal tools
