What do mean in detail: you will have a subnet with 254 nodes to add  
but will not setup any hostnames (by a NIS server)? I also use PXE,  
but as the hostnames are coming via DHCP (fixed for each MAC-address  
- the MAC-address is shown automatically on the node), it's no problem.

Add the hostnames with a shell loop as administration hosts to SGE,  
and if you start the sge_execd on the node they will automatically be  
added as execution hosts to SGE.
