If you are doing mostly MPI, I would strongly reccoment TORQUE  (a free, open source, OpenPBS fork with *many* enhancements).  I would not reccoment OpenPBS, as Altair no longer updates it and hasn't for quite some time.  TORQUE has great integration with mpich by using mpiexec from Pete at  (http://www.osc.edu/~pw/mpiexec/index.php).  LAM and OpenMPI have native PBS (and TORQUE) support as well.
