on 5 December, the beowulf@beowulf.org mailing list had a post by Joey
Raheb about several queuing solutions:

PBS - http://www.openpbs.org                                                    
NQS - http://umbc7.umbc.edu/nqs/nqsmain.html                                    
DQS - http://www.scri.fsu.edu/~pasko/dqs.html                                   
Condor - http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/              

For his needs, he thought DQS and PBS had the best features.  I can
say from experience that PBS is hard (to put it mildly) to configure,
but a lot of people like PBS.
