You actually do not have to look very far: SuSE comes with a lot of
software for clusters. Here is a list of SuSE-9.0 rpms you may want
to look at:

mpich-1.2.5-241.i586.rpm
mpich-devel-1.2.5-241.i586.rpm
lam-7.0-77.i586.rpm
lam-devel-7.0-77.i586.rpm
fftw-mpi-2.1.3-960.i586.rpm
fftw-mpi-devel-2.1.3-960.i586.rpm
OpenPBS-2.3.16-466.i586.rpm
OpenPBS-clients-2.3.16-466.i586.rpm
OpenPBS-devel-2.3.16-466.i586.rpm
OpenPBS-mom-2.3.16-466.i586.rpm
OpenPBS-scheduler-2.3.16-466.i586.rpm
OpenPBS-server-2.3.16-466.i586.rpm
OpenPBS-utils-2.3.16-466.i586.rpm

and probably more.
As an aside: that version of OpenPBS is actually by far superior to the
version that you can download from the PBS web site. The SuSE rpm has
patches for many bugs in the (unsupported) openpbs source code. Thus,
even if you are not running SuSE you may want to download their
OpenPBS src.rpm and recompile it for your distribution (alternatively
you could use SPBS).

Cheers,
Martin
