Yes you can. However, as Andrew said, it's probably a mistake.
You're better off using Fedora 14 where the code base is newer
and it will be supported longer.

You can build it from source, but find a source that's compatible
with your kernel may be a challenge. GFS2 has advanced to match
ongoing kernel development.

You can build the Fedora 12 kernel from source RPMS, but you're
likely going to encounter bugs that have already been fixed by
later revisions.

If you go with Fedora 14, it may be easier to compile the latest
source from the GFS2 kernel git repo.

GFS2 does not care how many nodes are in your cluster.
The only thing that cares is the rest of the cluster infrastructure.
However, we don't recommend that many nodes for various reasons.
For one thing, your network may be clogged with lots of traffic,
which may interfere with proper cluster communications.
