Whilst the installation document seems concise and to the point, we are wondering about one thing and that is the *requirement* for shared disk-space across the nodes. In my mind that seems contrary to the use of GRIDEngine as a system to farm tasks across arbitrary idle PCs/Workstations. In some places, the documentation seems to suggest that it is a recommendation, rather than a requirement, but makes no suggestion as to how to configure any alternative arrangment.
