We run SLES 9 SP3, with PP4, SP3 on our Altix.  I'm using cpusets in a simple manner.  During boot an init script checks for the presence of the /batch cpuset, and if missing creates it.  The three daemons (mom, server and sched) are then started within the cpuset, and will therefore create all children within it unless otherwise directed.  We're (currently) using Torque only on a single 64-cpu node, not across a cluster so the procedure works well.
