[GE users] Need a queuing system on Mac OS X

We have several dual-quad core macs in our departments.  The problem  
comes when four or more users start intensive calculations on the  
system.  The console image becomes locked from time to time.  If ones  
watches the monitor, one sees the jobs jump from processor to  
processor.  The jobs don't land on a definite processor and stay there  
until they finish.  I would like to have the console run on one of the  
processors and have the jobs queued out to the other processors to  
prevent the console from locking up.

I understand that gridengine can work on Mac OS X 10.5.  How well?  Is  
it obvious how the processors are added to queues, etc?
