running namd with condor

**I am trying to run namd vi Condor-G.
**However, whatever I try it does not except that argument as the file name.
It always gives me the following error:

*------------- Processor 0 Exiting: Called CmiAbort ------------*
*Reason: FATAL ERROR: No simulation config file specified on command line.*

My condor submit file is following:
universe = globus
globusscheduler = *<site>*/jobmanager-pbs
executable = *<directory path for namd>*/namd2
arguments = "*<directory path for config file>*/min1.conf"
environment = "CHARMRUN=*<directory path for charmrun>*/charmrun"
remote_initialdir = /.../../.../sim/0000
should_transfer_files = YES
when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT
transfer_executable = false
error = tom_condor_old.error
output = tom_condor_old.output
log = tom_condor_old.log
notification = never
globusrsl = (project=<*allocation*>)(jobType=mpi)(count=04)(queue =
checkpt)(arguments=*<directory path for config file>*/min1.conf)

Since I did not know whether I have to give the argument name as the
argument in condor-dagman or argument as a value in globusrsl; I wrote in
both places (as you can see above).

I am trying to solve that problem for a week but I could not. Has anybody
tried that before? I really appreciate any help.
