unless you really want to run programs as root, I wouldn't recommend  
to allow root login at all with ssh. Better is to have to login as a  
user first, and then su to root.

If you use rsh, you also don't need any passwordless ssh login. After  
putting all the nodes in all /etc/hosts.equiv the rsh should allow  
already a passwordless login to the nodes. With setting  
P4_RSHCOMMAND, it will target compiled programs.

The tstmachines is just a script, where the to be used rsh-command is  
mentioned in the beginning of the script. Maybe you can change it  
there directly.

Well, yes - different shell. - Reuti
