I am in the process of installing SGE on a Scyld beowulf cluster.  As 
most people are aware, the Scyld cluster runs a complete OS (linux) only 
on the master node and the compute nodes are simply for executing.  
During the SGE install, it requires adding the compute nodes as execute 
hosts.  I do not understand how to do this given the current setup of a 
scyld cluster since you can't "login" to the nodes to execute the 
install script.  The script does exist on an NFS shared directory 
(clusater wide).  Has anybody else ran into this problem?
