For the record, DRMAA is Distributed Resource Management Application 
API.  It a standard API that Grid Engine offers for submitting, 
monitoring, and controlling jobs.  The blog post I sent has DRMAA in the 
title, but it's really just a quickie guide to getting a test Grid 
Engine installation running.

That said, just go download the binaries. :)  Grid Engine may be open 
source, but it's also a product from Sun.  Customers tend not to like to 
be forced to build the products themselves. ;)
