I've read through those scripts in 5.3 and 6.0.  And since then I've 
added over 100 compute nodes without using inst_sge.  All that is needed 
is to add the exec host to SGE (I use qconf -ae, but I'm sure the other 
methods mentioned will work), and make sure that host is assigned to a 
queue/assigned to a hostgroup that's assigned to a queue.  The last part 
isn't strictly necessary, but probably something you'll still want to do :)

After that, just make sure the binaries are on the compute host and 
start up sge_execd.
