[HTCondor-users] How to configure and use grid_resource = pbs


I'm trying to figure out how to submit a job in the grid universe to PBS. I've read: http://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/manual/v7.8/5_3Grid_Universe.html#SECTION00635000000000000000 and this presentation http://www.t2.ucsd.edu/twiki2/pub/Main/GlideinFactory1111/glideinWMS-Condor-G.pdf

I'm not clear how to configure gLite and GAHP for my use case - or if that would even work. There's quite a bit of middleware and acronyms to get familiar with, so I would appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction because maybe what I want isn't possible.

Can someone clarify:
- I have SSH access to PBS submission node with qsub/qstat binaries. I do not have admin rights and cannot install additional packages on the PBS cluster. My local workstation that will run condor_schedd does not have qsub/qstat, but I can install any other software. Will glite and gahp work in this scenario?
- If the above doesn't work what needs to be installed on the PBS cluster side?
- How are HTCondor job description directives to transfer files handled (if at all)?
- How does bosco relate to glite and gahp? Is there overlap in functionality? Is it still used/supported/developed? The download from http://bosco.opensciencegrid.org/download/ doesn't work and last commit to github is 3 years ago. Has it been merged into HTCondor (I see bosco binaries deployed with HTCondor)?
- Will dagman work with these types of jobs?
