[Beowulf] disabling bad nodes

This is a strange question, but
Is there any way to disable a bad node in PBS without being the  
system administrator?
I am lining up about 50 jobs in the queue and they fail sequentially  
when they hit
the bad node.  This often seems to happen on the weekends when nobody
is around to reboot the node.

Can I specify within PBS "don't use node015" or something like that.

I may be using TORQUE rather than PBS, by the way
