Read the following for full info on how the priority calculation works:
http://www.clusterresources.com/products/maui/docs/5.1.2priorityfactors.shtml

In short, you have to set

CREDWEIGHT	1

in maui.cfg

1 means the priority goes in with factor 1 into the equation.
If you're also doing QOS you should set QOSWEIGHT to a higher factor

QOSWEIGHT               3


Cheers,
Ronny
