My SB3GX came with 2.5.1 and no manpages (or media, but that was part of the
deal). I ended up loading 2.6 on it since Tadpole wants $75 for a replacement
CD of 2.5.1 (I've got a 2.5.1 license). While that's not terrible, my wife
suggested that I find a cheaper way to do things. :)
I'd go ahead and get a copy of the media. You can usually find media on ebay or
just order it from Sun.. A while back, I signed up as a sun developer (for
free) and they sent me 2.6 for Sparc and Intel. I know you can do the same
thing with 2.7, but it's a big of a hog. Worst case, get the 2.7 stuff and just
install the man pages.. they'll be close enough to what you need. For all I
know, the manpage packages are the same on 2.6 sparc and intel.. you can find
2.6 intel media pretty easily on the usenet, ebay, etc. If you have a 2.6
license, I can probably scrounge up a spare 2.6 CD.

rsh is also rather hostname resolution sensitive. Try using IP addresses and
see how it goes.
