[Beowulf] Infiniband - Is there a HowTO?

I have recently acquired some IB adapters and an IB switch. My kernel
is 2.6.9-34.ELsmp and has a directory for infiniband under
kernel/drivers in /lib/modules. No modules get loaded by default at
boot time though.
I can see the IB detected with lspci yet dmesg shows nothing.
03:07.0 PCI bridge: Mellanox Technologies MT23108 PCI Bridge (rev a1)
04:00.0 InfiniBand: Mellanox Technologies MT23108 InfiniHost (rev a1)
I'm just wondering how to proceed. I imagine that I'll need to load
some modules and configure the interface with ifconfig. Load up the
OpenIB RPM and build my OpenMPI libs.
I just can't seem to find some HowTo to make sure I get it all correct.
What modules to load, when. That sort of thing. If anyone could
provide me with some pointers at least I can get started on getting
something configured and tested.
