torque.setup is a very simple script, take a look at it.

It does a 'hostname -f', which probably only works on GNU-based systems.
I bet just changing that to a simple 'hostname' will work.

Every machine in the cluster needs matching forward and reverse hostname
lookups.  A fully populated /etc/hosts will work fine if you don't want
to setup DNS.
