[torqueusers] can't get more than one processor per node

I have 8 cores per node.  I think I have torque configured to know that
each node has 8 cores.
## from pbsnodes ##
     state = job-exclusive
     np = 8
     ntype = cluster
     jobs = 0/52.prodnode1.brooks.af.mil, 1/52.prodnode1.brooks.af.mil,
2/52.prodnode1.brooks.af.mil, 3/52.prodnode1.brooks.af.mil,
4/52.prodnode1.brooks.af.mil, 5/52.prodnode1.br
ooks.af.mil, 6/52.prodnode1.brooks.af.mil, 7/52.prodnode1.brooks.af.mil
     status = opsys=linux,uname=Linux prodnode3.brooks.af.mil
2.6.18-8.1.4.el5 #1 SMP Thu May 17 03:16:52 EDT 2007
x86_64,sessions=3059 3205 3237,nsessions=3,nusers=1,idletime=162

But, whenever I try to run a job some nodes, it only runs on one
processor for some reason.  I have this basic test script that contains:

[sam at prodnode3 all]$ cat script.sh
#PBS -l nodes=1
`mpirun /home/sam/code/fdtd/fdtd_0.3/fdtd -t
/home/sam/code/fdtd/fdtd_0.3/test_files/tissue.txt -r
110.raw -v -f 2000 --pw 90,0,1,0`
exit 0

I have tried running it with
$ qsub script.sh
$ qsub -l nodes=1:ppn=8 script

and I have tried changing the script to say mpirun -np 8 or mpiexec to
no avail.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong here?
