[GE users] Using hostgroups in queue config

I've been slowly setting up SGE for use in production at our company. We 
are using 6.0u1 at the moment and we have one cluster queue all.q set 
up.  I have 4 different host groups that I've set up, and I'd like to 
use those host groups to set some queue configurations.  For example, 
desktop work stations have load and suspend thresholds associated with 
them, while pure renderfarm machines do not.  I have tried to set up the 
suspend threshold using the @artisthosts and @techhosts hostgroups; but 
I get an ambigous configuration error as shown by the qstat output below.

qstat -explain c
queuename                      qtype used/tot. load_avg arch          states
all.q at dragon.wildbrain.com     BIPC  0/0       0.13     lx24-x86      c
         warning: "suspend_thresholds" has ambiguous value 
("@artisthosts", "@techhosts")

I tried to follow the "How to" on migrating jobs from desktop 
workstations; but it appears to be written for an earlier version of SGE 
  and does not make any mention of using hostgroups.  Can someone please 
point me in the right direction.  Here is the current queue 
configuration for the all.q

qconf -sq all.q
