I (and many others) have got this running fine on dual athlons without 
using the lamd mode. Are you using a different version of lam than the one 
that the Gromacs rpms were compiled with? If so, you need to recompile 
everything. While doing that, I recommend using the optimisations for lam 
that improve short message passing. See list archive for details.
