Thanks to all who responded. My problem with not being able to
rsh/rlogin w/out a password has been solved. As many people pointed
out, I did not want to use /.rhosts entries as that compromises
security just a little too much. So what I had been doing and was
working fine for other Sol 2.4/2.5 system was to use /etc/hosts.equiv
entries. Well, when I checked it's size as compared to another know
working system it showed my version had 43 bytes and the working one had
42 bytes. There must have been some extra white space in there that was
confusing things.
