Couple of things to check:
         * grompp was run with the switch -np #
         * when you executed lamboot that lam was actually installed and 
running on all of the nodes.  When I was setting things up I was running 
something like the computer monitoring program top to see what was 
happening on each computer box.
         * nodes listed in hostfile for lamboot corresponds to the nodes 
you want it to run on.  List a server/computer twice etc if it has multiple 
         * run mdrun using "mpirun C mdrun ......." is all you need to 
use.  You don't have to have the -np switch.

         * not a bad idea to throw in the -v (verbose) switch on all the 
lam scripts and GROMACS until things are up and running.

Hope this helps.
