Try setting sge_qmaster (and sge_execd?) to ports above 1024 (edit /etc/services
or set $SGE_QMASTER_PORT). There is a bug with sge 6.0 on redhat linux and ports
below 1024, this bug is fixed in CVS but I think it still exists in the binary

CR-2004-06-18-0: Bugfix:    o sge_qmaster will not start unless run only as 
                            o qmaster cannot bind port below 1024 on Linux
                 Changed:   qmaster
                 Issue:     1096, 1098
