Looks like the directory that your MPI executable 'test' is in is: 


Correct? This directory needs to be visible on each node used 
by MPI to run your program. You might also need to put a ./ in 
front of the name of the executable, as in ./test . You also need 
be able the 'rsh' to each of those nodes. Because you have not 
specified a 'machines' file, MPI is using the default file in the install 
tree which normally lists the nodes in simple sequence. Still, I 
think the problem option 1 or 2 above.
