To sum it up once again: I want to start mpich-jobs on my SGE. On each node
there should be exatcly two jobs running. How can I achieve this?

My script looks like this:
#$ -pe mpich 8
#$ -S /bin/zsh
#$ -r n
#$ -cwd
${MPIRUN} -v -machinefile $TMPDIR/machines -np $NSLOTS PROGRAM

The parallel environment is
qconf -sp mpich
pe_name           mpich
slots             72
user_lists        NONE
xuser_lists       NONE
start_proc_args   /opt/N1GE/mpi/startmpi.sh -catch_rsh $pe_hostfile
stop_proc_args    /opt/N1GE/mpi/stopmpi.sh
allocation_rule   2
control_slaves    TRUE
job_is_first_task TRUE
urgency_slots     min

The queue is
qconf -sq q_mpich
