as SGE is still running across the ethernet, you can just map the hostnames like outlined in the $SGE_ROOT/mpi/startmpi.sh where it's mapped to ATM hostnames. Depending on your applications, it can be necessary to supply -hostname to the startmpi.sh script, so that hostnames are mapped in general (also from the applications point of view).
