[Beowulf] Schedulers for use with Scyld Version 28

I was wondering what the scheduler options are for me if I am running a 
Scyld version 28 machine.
 From everything I am finding, it appears that I only have a few choices.
1)  at/bbq that ships with Scyld
2)  PBS Pro
3)  Clubmask/Maui

I am running a very small cluster right now (16 processors) out of a 
University lab and PBS Pro is really out of our price range right now.  
I would like to add more nodes to the machine, but scheduling jobs is 
already a problem, so I don't think that bbq is the right choice.  I 
have tried installing clubmask/Maui, but I ran into problems while 
compiling it.  I was advised that it was due to the age of BProc that 
ships with Scyld.  I was told that 3.2.5 is required.

Can anybody give me some suggestions?
