Thanks for the anwer. Now I'm looking for a way to influence the number 
of slots on each machine. What I need is for example 16 slots on 4 
machines. Setting up the parallel environment, it seems that I only have 
a possibility to influence the maximum and minimum number of slots. When 
submitting the job the pe is named with a range of slots, but I didn't 
find a rule how to allocate them. Can somebody tell me how to solve this 
or where I have to look for a solution?
