Just want to confirm SGE configuration again. As mentioned earlier we started 
with a separate galaxy VM without any SGE installation. The SGE master node is 
installed on a separate system altogether. As I understand from your reply, we

host with the main SGE master node. Is that correct? Are their any alternative
