I'm trying to package GNUBatch for OpenCSW [1]. I've created a package 
and installed GNUBatch quite successfully. I can start it, run jobs with 
gbch-r and they're executed. I even get an email about it every time.

Now, the question is how do I get it to run the job on other nodes? I've 
been through the manuals but haven't been able to find much info on the 
subject. I can't find much info on how to create different queues, only 
how to write expressions to select them.



You firs need to have each other node set up so it sees "exported" jobs and variables from its peers - you should be able to change job parameters remotely etc.

You may have to run gbch-hostedit to set up other nodes' IP addresses and stop/restart the scheduler.

When done, try setting the next stage up from "exporting" a job so it's "remote runnable" (you may want to set the loadlevel to zero on the "owning" machine) and the job should be able to run on the other nodes.
