Scyld: How to start process on slaves in local PID-Space

I installed the Scyld Beowulf-2 distribution and it seems to work pretty
However, I need to start some daemons on the slave nodes (condor). But the
daemons fail, because they look for /proc/pid, where the pid is the global
one, but in /proc, the directories have the local PID.

Is it possible to fire up a daemon in the local PID-space only? There is no
need to see these in the global process space. The docs of BProc say it's
possible, but not for the end-user (and they don't tell how).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
