Thanks for all of the replies on this. I think this may be what
I'm after. We are actually using MCNPX which is pre-installed
on Linux clusters (although I may have a look at a Win installation
sometime). I haven't had a chance to plough through the documentation
on the code so I'm wondering how I create the input files for
the Condor version - do I just get each one to do a proportion
of the total number of histories. Do you have any pointers on how to
combine the outputs or even a script ? I can send you some typical
input and output files if that would be useful.

Thanks James for forwarding.
Hi Ian - yes we do run MCNP on Condor - whether or not MCNP has been
pre-installed on the execution node. You just need to recombine the
various split output files, according to your specific tally. I find
mctal files most useful.
Hope this helps.

I'm glad things are running now, do you have any feedback for Ian that
might help him ?
Thanks in advance

This may be a long shot but ...
Has anyone had any experience of running MCNP (or similar)
using Condor vanilla/globus (not MPI) universe. This is
a Monte Carlo radiation simulation code which we at present
run using MPI on various clusters. This seems rather wasteful
and I'm wondering if there's a way of running it without the
communications harness as a trivially parallel application using
