Hmm, seems you've been pretty busy over the weekend.  :-)

Honestly, I think that shipping a whole config in the email would be overkill, 
unless it comes down to it...  I'd be glad to offer some suggestions as to 
what may be causing your problems, and how to diagnose them, though...

You gave very little information as to what is actually going on, so I'll 
start with some of the very basics....

1. Are both machines actually reporting to the pool?  Run 'condor_status' to 
get a list of machines in the pool; verify that both of them show up.  If 
not, you need to solve this before anything else...

2. To handle the systems w/o NFS shares should be easy; just make sure that 
the FileSystemDomain values of the boxes are different (probably the boxes 
FQDNs: something like "host1.foo.com" and "host2.foo.com" ).

3. Run 'condor_q -analyze' or 'condor_analyze'.

Once you do this, change the FileSystemDomain values to be the same (probably 
just the domain portion of the FQDN).

I'm not sure which of the below is still relevant; are you still having 
problems with your START expression?

Good luck,
