I'm not sure if  that's the correct description, but maybe I'm not following you correctly. Let me rephrase the problem:
We have one control server from where we start all the jobs. The jobs communicate with all nodes by themselves (we have an SSH- and Telnet-based solution that's already working). The only thing we need a resource manager / job queue for is to manage the available resources and kick off the jobs once the required resources are available.

User 1 submits a job which needs 1 server, 2 linux clients, 1 windows client
User 2 submits a job which needs 2 servers, 2 linux clients, 2 windows clients

Condor in this case should only manage the resources and kick off the jobs once the required nodes are available. I'm not sure if that's a typical use case of Condor, though.
