Query: PVM Setup on ScyldBeowulf?

Can anyone give me pointers as to what is required to get PVM running
smoothly on a "typical" diskless slave node beowulf type setup (ie, one
head node with a disk that netboots all diskless slave nodes) ? [This is
using the most-current "freebie" version of Scyld as purchased from
I am able to locate the pvmd, start the thing, and monitor status of pvm,
but I can't see how to
-build a good setup file that will get slave nodes working smoothly
-where to put binaries on head node so they are available (via NFS
shares I guess?) to slave nodes?
-how to set environment variables required for PVM on the slave nodes..?
Any pointers on this would certainly be greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much!
