If the way you can tell the difference is the file:  
$SGE_ROOT/default/common/product_mode, then I'm running "sgeee".  If 
there is some other way to tell the difference between the two modes, 
I'm not aware of it.

This seems to make your question above very pertinent, since the 
"share_tree" manual page indicates:

       The share tree object is only available in case of a Grid Engine 
        prise Edition system. Grid Engine has no share tree object.

Thanks for the pointer to the use cases document.  I'll give it a whirl 
and see what happens.  If it becomes more complex than installing Maui, 
I'll do that instead.  :)
