Hi Rainer

We did this on a few machines here, and a lot of people also use Torque in a single
machine, as it is very convenient to schedule and control jobs.

Many Linux distributions have Torque packages.
That is the fast way to install it.
Check with your 'yum', 'apt-get' or similar.
However, I don't think there is Maui also, but I haven't checked this lately.

If you want full control, choose the release, etc, 
you can download and install both from source in your standalone machine.
Then run the three daemons, pbs_server, maui [or if you prefer it, pbs_server], 
and pbs_mom on that machine.
The setup for queues, etc, is about the same.
It is simpler if you allow the server name just default to 'localhost'.

I hope this helps,
