I believe that you might find posts about getting
suspend/resume working in the archives (though we've never
used it here, so I can't vouch for if it still works).

Some codes (like NAMD) implement checkpointing themselves.

In Torque's trunk at the moment is preliminary code for
supporting the BCLR checkpointing kernel module, though
it's likely to just be for single CPU jobs at the
moment (you'll probably need one of the MPI's that
supports BCLR to get further).
