Whe use Gridengine [1] in a Debian/x86 beowulf and works very well and
it's open source.

It seems that there aren't ia64 binaries but may be you can try to compile
it, there are many platforms supported so it shouldn't be so difficult
(perhaps someone has already done it).

A debian package is supposedly being prepared [2] (710 days ago), and you
can get preliminary packages.
