Thank you for responding. Sorry about the delayed response - I didn't see it at the time. I'm not sure that we are looking for something to "scavenge" cycles - we want to add analyses to a Torque (PBS) queue.
Our work network is large and predominantly Win7 (and we are trialling HTCondor). We have a dedicated analysis cluster running SUSE Linux. We have set up Torque/PBS on the Linux cluster and I would like to be able to address jobs to that cluster from our Win7 PCs. Is that possible? The master node of the cluster is connected to the PC network. Would we install HTCondor on the Linux master node?
I was also looking at whether we could send jobs directly to the PBS queue from our PCs, but I can't see how to do that.

I'm not entirely clear what you have in mind. Are you looking to use HTCondor to scavenge cycles from the PBS cluster when it's idle? When I was at Purdue, we did something like that and documented it in the HTCondor wiki:
We ran the central manager on the PBS server and schedulers on the PBS front ends, though there's no reason you _have_ to architect it that way.
If you want to use a condor_schedd on the Windows instances to submit _to_ the PBS scheduler, you'll want to look at the grid universe:
