We have a similar situation and we would love to see how you do  
this,  would you be willing to provide the script that does this?  We  
have a even smaller box (32 cpu) and if I understand cpusets enough,   
doing this would protect interactive use (2 cpus and some memory)   
from being hammered by out of control batch jobs.  We currently just  
have maui kill jobs that run over requested memory.

Hope you can help us out!  Thank you
