Whats best practice for services on 10 nodes with 6 data disks and a head node? Where should I put things.

Depends on how much capacity you need after configuring the cluster. Generally you can make two servers as your utility nodes to install CDH services(except datanode and tasktracker) and rest of them just datanodes with task trackers. Best practice, always try to have datanodes and tasktracker services installed on the same node so that data will be locally available for tasktrackers to perform an efficient job.
