[torqueusers] simple (I hope) /etc/hosts question

Torque was really easy to install, but it seems like my /etc/hosts file must
be screwed up, as I can't get the cluster nodes to respond.  Specifically,
within a cluster of 3 machines, each having an /etc/hosts file of:

    127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost
    199.17.152.17   runner
    199.17.152.135  muscovey
    199.17.152.13   pekin
    (( other workstations follow ))

Now, when I have the pbs_server running on runner, and the pbs_mom daemons
running on muscovey, pekin, and runner, I et the following status message,

    [root at runner torque-2.1.6]# pbsnodes -a
    pekin
         state = down
         np = 1
         ntype = cluster

    muscovey
         state = down
         np = 1
         ntype = cluster

    runner
         state = down
         np = 1
         ntype = cluster

I realize this is a pretty low-level question, but what the heck is wrong
with my /etc/hosts file?

regards,

NT
