  The short answer is NO, they cannot be built in a day.  The long answer is
YES, they can be built in a day if you are building a relatively small one
and have a decent amount of experience building them yourself.  Do not
expect to get you first cluster up and running in a day.

Glad to hear you managed to figure it out arithmetically, that is best and
will make it scale that much more directly if you do move it to a cluster.
