Dear Gmx-Users,

I'm configuring a small cluster of 5 Dell Power Edge 1800 with dual 
xeon conected by a gigabit dell switch. I was wondering which MPI 
distribution, LAM/MPI or MPICH(which version), on this platform has 
better performance for gromacs 3.3.1 on a  fedora 5 linux distribution. 
I will try to combine that with SGEgrid as a queue manager. Also I will 
like to know if I can expect for big systems, 200.000 atoms, good 
parallelitzarion in the 5 nodes ( 10 processors).

Thank you
