	Yes, I had thought about something like that, Andre.  Unfortunately, I'm 
hoping to not have to micromanage the number of slots(I would want two 
smaller jobs to run on the large mem systems, but only one large job).  AFAIK 
the load adjustment is specifically designed for this, but damned if I can 
get it to do anything.  :P

	Thanks for the suggestion, though.  Anyone know where the docs exist on 
specifically what each load adjustment is for(mem, vmem, mem_free...)?  I 
can't find them anywhere, and I really just need a practical application of 
them so systems don't get bullied by hungry jobs.  :)

	Thanks, Andre...
