very easy.  

Create a VM or use a physical workstation and install Openfiler with instructions below.  Once completed you can mount the iSCSI LUNs to ESX servers or physical servers or other VMs as you would in a real world environment

What is your budget?  I may be able to recommend hardware that is on the HCL list so you don't have to plug and pray for it to work
