[GE users] Defining priority of hosts

Greetings, everyone. 

I'm a GridEngine newbie, so please forgive me if this is a simple/dumb
question. I searched through the docs, and couldn't find an answer
there. I could have been using the wrong terminology in my searches. 

I'm not sure if "priority" is the correct term in GridEngine parlance.
Here's what I'm trying to do: My execution hosts are a mixture of
different systems, from old SGIs to new multi-core, multi-processor
Opterons. All systems are in the same queue. When jobs are submitted,
I'd like them to be assigned to the fasted idle computer available,
instead of randomly assigned or round-robbined. 

For example, if host A has 4 processors. Host B has 8 processors, but
those processors are only 1/2 as fast as host A. If I submit 5 jobs, I
want all 4 processors of  host A filled before jobs are assigned to host

What is the best way to do this?
