Ah, really? When I asked about this a while ago, I was informed that it
would require nontrivial hacking. Unfortunately my cluster already exists
that way and I have no further funding on that project to buy a Scyld
support contract so I let it drop. If the situation has improved then I'll
have to have another look at Scyld.
I guess the important issue was dealing with the mapper. It has to go on
one of the compute nodes, since the front end isn't on the Myrinet.
