Kernel versions are fine but tell us your architecture as well :)

The current version of SGE is 6.0u3 although 6.0u4 is coming out soon 
most likely.

The docs are here:

Those docs will get you very far along in your install process

BDB is used for storing spooling and state information. It is required 
unless you want to use "classic" spooling which uses text files instead 
of berkeleydb files for storage. Has nothing to do with Postgres/MySQL.

Good luck!
