[torqueusers] torque.setup script needs to run as part of rpm install

So for that to happen a default install user would need to be determined 
and the only one that comes to mind is user root.  This is because we 
would need something to cover 100% percent of the installs and since not 
all installs are interactive we would need a default user.  I'm not sure 
that "./torque.setup root" should be the default, what are peoples 
thoughts about that?

You can quite easily edit the torque.spec file yourself and add this 
functionality to torque.spec.  You'll need to test this but if you edit 
the section of the file under "%files server" and add 
%{torquehomedir}/torque.setup then under "%post server" add 
%{torquehomedir}/torque.setup <USERNAME>.  The last line may fail if the 
user doesn't already exist on the system.

If that doesn't work I'd check this guide http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/ to 
see were I went wrong.  It shouldn't take you too long, worst case 
scenario you learn more about rpm's.
