Thanks Craig,

Hmmm... Interesting... I must be looking at the wrong set of docs.  In
looking at the following URLS


Step 3 in section 1.1.3 of the former, in the info specifically states

        The only required package for the compute nodes is mom-linux.
        Additional packages are recommended so you can use client
        commands and submit jobs from compute nodes.
While in the tail end of L.3, it states

        Optionally, distribute and install the clients package.

Either that, or some doc updates were missed (done that one too many
times myself).
