 MPICH2 is open-source and available at no cost (free). I can provide a custom build for you, however we recommend all users to use stable releases for production environments. Also, the version that I provide you will be an experimental support for Network Direct (performance tuning is in the works... and I haven't had a chance to run it on a large system to weed out all the bugs.).
 I would recommend buying "Using MPI" (http://www.mcs.anl.gov/research/projects/mpi/usingmpi/) or any other introductory book on getting started with MPI. There is also a lot of material on MPI if you google for it.
 I will provide you a custom build in a couple of days.

thanks for your quick response ! 
I'm a little complicated with time , I need it soon . 
Can you provide a custom build for me? how much would it cost? or would it be free ? 

I'm just getting started with MPI, and InfiniBand networks . That's why I wanted to ask if you can send me a manual or tutorial where I can learn a little more about it .
