There's (at least) 2 ways to achieve that on Rocks 3.3 :

- install gromacs in a NFS shared directory (either your home directory 
or one you specify), you can argue that would unnecessarily charge the 
 but it is barely noticeable on a gigabit lan.

- build your own rpms from your custom compilation, and then place them 
in the installation directory of Rocks (there's also a xml file to 
update if I remember well).
An easy way to build  your own rpms is to begin with the .spec files 
provided with the gromacs source distribution. (I have made some for our 
Rocks 3.3 cluster here,
i can send them if you want ... just have to figure where I did store 
them ... )

Hope that helped

Compiling gives you alot of control you don't have with RPMs.....but if you compile on the head node what would be the best way to get your compute nodes to automatically rebuild the gromacs series when the compute nodes need rebuilding. Running make and make install with ./configure flags is just to much for many nodes.
