If you indeed get the "same error" (there is no lamd running on the host), then
the problem with with lam, not with amber. Did "lamboot" give any reply (it should
spit out the version number, etc. to the screen). You can run "lamnodes" to see what
lam thinks is happening. Have you run simple MPI test cases with lam?
