Here is a great article on how to install the iSCSI software initiator on Linux and then connect to volumes.

The article mentions the steps were tested on Redhat Enterprise (RHEL) v5, CentOS v5, Fedora v7 and Debian/Ubuntu Linux.
I went through the steps on a CentOS v5.3 x64 machine and it worked flawlessly.
