The first action the user should take after invoking PADE is to create
a PVM hostfile and start the PVM console.
The user is strongly encouraged to keep the pop-up window containing

is that PADE will hang if the user executes a parallel application that hangs.
This can be remedied by halting the VM from the PVM console.

- Enter a file name (for example, pvmhostfile

- In the pop-up editor window, create a file containing the host names in
the virtual machine, one name per line.
- Select PVM console under the PVM button.
- Type conf
at the PVM prompt in the pop-up PVM console window to view
the configuration of your virtual machine.
