Thanks for the tip and getting me back on track.

I have gotten SSH and rsync working with MuLinux, so I am very happy :-)

I set up another machine with Red Hat 4.2, and compiled SSH 1.2.26, and
grabbed the ssh-keygen program and brought it over to Mulinux. And then
generated the keys.

I also learned about `hostname`, so that I could give it
a proper name, because SSH likes to verify names and reverse ip addresses.
Although one of the SSH settings might turn that off.

I did run into a small problem using mk2efs, in that it could not find the
badblocks program, so I also imported that from RH 4.2

I am planning on spending some more time today seeing what else I can make
this distribution do.

Thanks a million.
