sometimes it's quite difficult to add machines from the console!
it's better that you create a pvmhostfile & add the machines at the moment
of pvm start up!

there's  a "new" version of PVM 3.4 (beowulf) that you don't need to add
machine from the console you only have to declare an env variable
$PROC_LIST to define which machines you will be use and it works with PBS
