[GE users] Stupid question about getting old binaries

That worked wonderfully.  However, I have a new problem that comes from my 
not really understanding how sge works under the hood.  I am trying to add 
an intel box running cent-os5.  I grabbed the lx24-x86 binary stuff and 
extracted it.  If I call the exact command , the one I tried was 
$SGE_ROOT/bin/lx24-x86/qstat, it works fine, but if I just issue a qstat 
command, it claims a command not found.

I am guessing that this is because the arch command returns 
and puts this in the $PATH variable.  Can I simply modify the arch script 
to return lx24_x86, or will there be other issues down the line?

you have to edit the URL, e.g.:


At some point "sge" was changed to "ge".
