[Mauiusers] Torque/Maui one queue multiple QoS levels

Hmm... I think mine is working.... I'm heading out the door but real  
quick this is what I have:

checking job 708409

State: Running
Creds:  user:ljeans  group:rhodes  class:altix  qos:mercury


I do QOS this way:


GROUPCFG[rhodes]    	PRIORITY=1000 QLIST=mercury QDEF=mercury

CLASSCFG[mercury]	PRIORITY=1000 QLIST=md:qm:mercury QDEF=mercury  

Notice they are using the Altix queue/class even though they are a  
mercury group using the mercury QOS. Anyhow, hope this helps....
