hello all,

i'd like to transfer the following files to all the nodes (running redhat):


each node has the rdist rpm installed, so i'd like to use that.  when i try
to run rdistd, it pauses for a second and returns (which is what i'd expect
a daemon to do).  unfortunately, when i do a ps ax, rdistd does not show up
in the list of processes.

does rdistd have to run on the remote host for rdist to work correctly?
can someone give me an example distfile that would place all these
	files on the nodes?
is there some way to use rsh to cat a localfile (the rpm's i want to
	transfer) to a remote file on the nodes?
