This does work (and I do have passwordless ssh set up among the nodes,
which I read was a requirement)

This does not seem to work using a direct substitution of file name
for host list.
with the line from the config file as:
# same result with the file path quoted or unquoted
./inst_sge -x -auto /path/to/sge_all.conf
Reading configuration from file /path/to/sge_all.conf
error resolving host "/path/to/file.one.host.per.line": can't resolve
host name (h_errno = HOST_NOT_FOUND)
so it looks like it's trying to use the file name as a host name.
There might be some option or other variable name to use, but the
direct substitution doesn't work.

Thanks (but what is an IFS?)
