We use torque/maui with gaussian.  The only issue is converting the list
of nodes from torque into the list of nodes for Linda and ensuring that
the user node request to qsub matches the request in their com file.

We use a script "g03run" to do the list conversion.  The relevant parts
are (note this is csh script):

if ( 1 == ${?PBS_NODEFILE} ) then
  if ( -efs ${PBS_NODEFILE} ) then
    setenv GAUSS_LFLAGS '-nodelist "'`awk '{ nodelist_array[$1] = $1 };
END{ for
 (node_str in nodelist_array) printf "%s ", node_str }'
 # Is a Linda job
 g03l ...
 g03 ...

Then the user qsub request (for example)

qsub -l nodes=2:ppn=2

must match their "com" file (for example)
