[Bioclusters] Xserve going full duplex

We have two xserves here at the Medical College and the problem is that the
Ethernet cards will not go to full-duplex. We have tried to use the ifconfig
utility but it don't seem to work. Have you experienced the same problem?

load values from GE on MacOS X

The version of BioTeam's packaged SGE that I found on my laptop was 
SGE5.3p2 which is pretty darn old. SGE5.3p4 has been out for a few weeks 

Interestingly enough I was at the Apple Summer Camp @ Stanford this week 
and met up with some Apple engineers from Australia who are successfully 
using a CVS-version of SGE without any problems (the main problem we had 
was trying to get the X11 qmon GUI to compile correctly).

According to the Australian SE's all they had to do was (a) install 
Motif via fink before building the SGE source from a recent CVS checkout.

I tried this last night at the airport and it looks as though everything 
compiled fine except for the X11 qmon GUI again. I need to do some more 
poking around to see what I'm doing wrong.

Anyway- I can build the SGE darwin binaries and put them up for download 
on http://bioteam.net if people are interested. Not sure if the qmon 
problem I'm having is an easy fix or not though.

I'll give it one more day of effort and if I still can't get qmon to 
compile I'll put the rest of the binaries up for download.
