I believe it is possible to set up SGE without any NFS at all. On the
other hand, you will have to handle the distribution of the scripts
and programs you want to run on your grid anyway, so you will probably
need NFS set up for that...

Have a look at GXP, it seems to be exactly what you are looking for:

You can also look at SQS, it seems to be very simple:

GXP looks more powerful, though.

As another post suggested, there is Torque, which is similar to SGE
and probably has similar requirements.

And there is also Condor, which does not need NFS but is more complex
(does checkpoints, etc.):

Then there are the commercial ones, of which Platform LSF seems to be
the more complete one, but as you are looking for something simple, I
recommend you look at the above first.
