I even tried

+ +

which let all tested accounts access fred via "rsh -l fred" to the
Solaris host and still didn't provide access to that account
via "rsh -l fred" to the Mandrake hosts.  

The ownerships, protection, and method of mounting (NFS)
are the same on Solaris and Mandrake.

How about a positive control.  Do any of you have access to
a Mandrake 10.0 (or other similar linux release that
obtains in.rshd from a package "rsh-server-0.17-13")?
Does rsh -l work there?
