I saw no reply to this, but the answer is to run the Spartan  
installer again after the queuing system is set up. The option comes  
up of selecting an external (to Spartan) queueing system.

The Spartan set up is run in the foreground and the submit function  
within the program uses whatever queueing system is selected.
