This is a short "Frequently Asked Questions" file on using the parallel electronic-structure code "NWChem" on the HPCVL SunFire cluster. This software uses MPI as a message-passing system and is (in principle) able to run on an arbitrary number of processors. Its ability to perform a very broad spectrum of molecular-structure calculations, ranging from CI to ab-initio molecular dynamics, makes it an interesting alternative to the standard electronic structure code Gaussian.
