There are also issues with the "N1 Grid Engine 6 Installation Guide".

1) *** Spool directories location ***

On page 13:
	The spool directories of the master host and of the execution
	hosts are configurable and need not reside under the default
	location, sge-root.
On the same page:
	Create a directory into which you will load the contents of
	the distribution media. This directory is called the root
	directory, or sge-root. When the grid engine system is running,
	this directory stores the current cluster configuration and
	all other data that must be spooled to disk.
The latter is wrong, in the sense that spool areas do not *necessarily* 
reside under sge-root. Actually this may be avoided for efficiency 
reasons (see page 18).
