Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have searched and searched for the answer to the question on how to
allow root to access a slackware 2.4.22 linux system from solaris systems without
linux system asking for password. Why. I need to utilize rdist from solaris systems
to linux system.
What I have been able to do on the linux system so far.
I have root ~/.rhosts - make sure in roots true home based on passwd file entry.
<solaris hostname> root
I have uncommented the tty's and pty's from /etc/securetty.
and in inetd.conf uncommented and restarted inetd (kill -HUP <pid of inetd>):
I suggest you look into using expect which is a wonderful tool for automating remote logins, uploads/downoads and stuff like that. Expect scripts aren't hard to write, and it comes with a script that can capture everything you type and create a script from it.
