LINUX CLUSTER: vendors & critical issues

In looking over the documents indicated, I do not see anything that 
grants use of the compilers for free.

The statement:

"The scope of your license depends on the type of license you purchased from
  Intel and the variety of license scopes are set forth below. "

Seems to indicate that the license covers only Eval or purchased licenses.

The following pages indicates that the Fortran compiler is $150/user
per machine. The cost for the C++ compiler is $100/user per machine.

http://www.intel.com/software/products/compilers/f60l/acadprice.htm
http://www.intel.com/software/products/compilers/c60l/acadprice.htm

Licensing by individual user would be a bit inflexible.  I called the reseller
indicated on the page and they had no pricing info on floating licenses.

The license page indicated below alludes to floating license for non-commercial
applications.

Does anyone have any pointers to contact information for purchase/acquisition
of the Intel compilers for cluster use in an academic environment?
