yes, you can setup the pid files by using (directly on the newly  
added node!):

% bin/hadoop-daemon.sh start datanode
% bin/hadoop-daemon.sh start tasktracker

then the stop-all will know the pid to shut down. It is unfortunate  
that start-daemon.sh and start-daemons.sh differ only in the "s".  
start-daemons.sh should probably be start-slave-daemons.sh or something.
