Hi Reuti,
Thank you for your time.

I do that also, ie, running linda on only the same processors (I buy 
them in batches of 6) ...

A shell loop wich automates submitting the jobs to different CPU's.

Untill now I did the job with my own (cshell scripted - I know I 
shouldn't, but it works ;-) scheduler. Jobs are submitted and return, when 
done, back to the master node. Simple, and robust, but when it comes to 
scheduling I want to have more power and maybe SGE is the most economic 
solution. e.g. cc-PVTZ jobs or optimization on big molecules (heavy jobs) 
can not be submitted to slower nodes etc.. It's possible to program that 
but it would take me far away ...


 The game is afoot.
