I have a machine using FreeBSD 6.0 which wont let me rcp as root.  I can rsh
as root or rcp as another user but no rcp as root.  I have several 4.10
machines that work fine as well as a 6.0 machine with no issues.
My .rhosts(chmod 600) file is in place as well as the hosts.equiv file, and
inetd is starting all the needed damons, hence the logins as other users and
my rsh connections.  Any Ideas...Im stumped.
