[torqueusers] Queue to node mapping with TORQUE only

Hi all
My question has probably been asked many times, but I need some clarifications

1) While using only TORQUE (i am not using Maui, neither Moab), is it 
possible to configure queue to node mapping, e.g queue1 to run on 
host1+host2+host3, and queue2 on host4+host5+host6  ?

2) If so, how can I perform it ?
I am currently using TORQUE 2.1.7. I tried the 
'resources_default.neednodes' stuff (torque manual chapter 4.1.4), and the 
'acl_host_enable' stuff (Moab manual chapter, but none of them work.

If maui is really mandatory, please tell me so.
Best regards

here is my configuration:

lmpc5 np=2 unijob work
lmpc4 np=4 unijob work
lmpc6 np=8 work
lmpc7 np=8 testing

Qmgr: print server
# Create queues and set their attributes.
# Create and define queue batch
create queue batch
set queue batch queue_type = Execution
set queue batch resources_default.nodes = 1
set queue batch resources_default.walltime = 01:00:00
set queue batch enabled = True
set queue batch started = True
# Create and define queue testing
create queue testing
set queue testing queue_type = Execution
set queue testing acl_host_enable = False
set queue testing acl_hosts = lmpc7
set queue testing resources_default.neednodes = testing
set queue testing resources_default.walltime = 01:00:00
set queue testing enabled = True
set queue testing started = True
# Set server attributes.
set server scheduling = True
set server default_queue = batch
set server log_events = 511
set server mail_from = adm
set server query_other_jobs = True
set server scheduler_iteration = 600
set server node_check_rate = 150
set server tcp_timeout = 6
set server node_pack = True
set server pbs_version = 2.1.7
set server allow_node_submit = True
