MPICH2 is one implementation of MPI, which is an API for writing
parallel programs.  I think what you want is help with writing MPI
programs, which then will run on any MPI implementation, including

Our own contribution in this area (plug alert!) is the pair of books,
"Using MPI" (Gropp, Lusk, and Skjellum), and "Using MPI-2" (Gropp, Lusk,
Thakur), There are other good books and book chapters around as well.
