i've also had this same problem on several suse 8.0 machines, and never
found a fix for it. As a workaround simply use ssh instead of rsh. Then
again, the ssh which ships with Suse 8.0 is not 100% compatible with that
of Suse 8.1 and can take up to 2 minutes to connect unless you use the "-1"
option to force protocol level 1. Note that scp does not have this option,
making it tricky to copy files between a Suse 8.0 and 8.1 machine using
ssh, but you can get around this:
