Hey Chris,

	Well two things could be the issue. Number one is that you can't run a 
job with TORQUE as user "root", or more correctly a user account with a 
UID of 0. Now from the error message below I suspect the username is not 
actually "user", but hopefuly it wasn't originally "root".

	What is more likely going on is that you've submitted a job as a user 
called "user" who doesn't have an entry in /etc/passwd on the compute 
node the job is running on. You can either go around to all of your 
nodes adding users, being careful to match the usernames to the UIDs 
when you create the users, or you need some shared naming system like
