What is the simplest batch scheduler to set up on a small linux cluster?

We have about 10 heterogeneous machines we would like to run various jobs on. The current situation is that people log in on a machine with ssh, see if other people are running stuff on it, then use screen to run the job.

How about GNU Queue? it's fairly easy to set up.

If it's just a few users and you want a quick solution, what about a centralized schedule/calendar? Just have people schedule time as they would a lab/conference room. it would take all of 25 min to setup and guaranties resources as long as everyone plays nice.
