Has anyone ran pvm povray?

I have set up pvm correctly, and can add hosts to my pvm.

One thing though is when I run pvmpov with said options , e.g. pvmpov 
+Iskyvase.pov +Oskyvase.tga +H480 +W640 pvmpovray starts up, it says its 
spawning 3 tasks for 3 hosts which is correct.
Then it stops, and says cannot spawn, executable not found.
I have looked at some literature on the web, and can't find anything which 
says clearly where this exe file should go, and what file it is exactly.

I had a non-productive day today, I was working on this in my project lab, 
when a group of other students came in, and switched all my machines off, it 
took me a while to figure out why pvm wouldn't work again, the pvmd socket 
file was still running in /tmp, so I deleted that and it works again.

Any help would be most appreciated.
