for SGE you can find some Howtos at their website in the Howtos  
section, e.g.



Just be aware, that the idea between SGE and PBS is a little bit  
different: in SGE you will submit a job requesting resources and SGE  
will select an appropriate queue for the job. In PBS you submit into  
a queue.
