I want to combine a dedicated cluster and the office workstations into a 
grid like system. I want  large mpi jobs to run on a Rocks cluster 
(which uses SGE) and smaller (mpi and non-mpi) jobs to run on available 
SMP workstations (using some technique for cycle scavenging with 
checkpointing and migration).

AFAIK Condor is better for cycle scavenging and checkpointing/migration. 
Is there a way to combine SGE (for the cluster mpi jobs) and Condor (for 
cycle scavenging on the workstations) under the same submit system 
(GridWay? Condor-G? Condor-C?)? Or can SGE be used for the workstation 
cycle scavenging, from the already up and running Rocks cluster, as well?
