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.
