mvapich should work, it is a port of mpich to use the verbs layer to  
support IB.
On the other hand if your going to use mpich at all, use mvapich2/ 

I vote for OpenMPI. follow the instructions the other list member  
pointed out.

Also verify that your runs are running on multiple nodes.  if you  
didn't set machinefile  in mpirun.args right or specify it with  
mpirun, mpich/mvapich didn't place the process on more than one  
machine. This is _not_ what you want.
