Newbie needs a perfect guide for Openstack ESSEX installation

I am new to Openstack. My Employer wants me to setup a private cloud using Openstack Essex only. I am not aware of hardware configuration atleast. So, I am decided to buy a CPU and learn installing Openstack Essex. Kindly help me by clearing few of my doubts as described below.

  1. Can I install and run Openstack in normal home used CPU with configuration mentioned here ?
  2. I heard that DHCP Server is required to allocate Floating ips. So should I buy another CPU which acts as DHCP Server?
  3. I am interested in ESSEX version only even though it is outdated. Kindly point me to a detailed guide which I can refer to instal and run openstack.
