Yes, I meant MVAPICH2 :).

Thanks for this recommendation. I actually have been in openmpi list 
since I first started with a small cluster (one desktop, two laptops) 
and tried to cluster them using NFS, DHCP, openMPI etc... few months 
ago, and I got a lot of help from openmpi community. Honestly, these 
experience helped me a lot this time.

Thanks! Yes, I am trying to get the system work with Torque/Maui/OpenMPI
