Usually pretty easy:

in $TORQUE_HOME/server_priv/nodes

set the np=<ncpus> parameter, like:

node1 np=2
node2 np=1

Also be sure to use the latest 2.1.1 torque as there was a bug affecting the 
distribution of jobs onto cpus (sometimes a cpu got 2+ jobs):

b - memory corruption on job exit causing cpu0 to be allocated more than once

That bug hit me real hard and it looks like it's affecting you, too
