DISCUSSION: NOBODY, ever thought of this little trick in KDE

This thread is to discuss the article titled:
NOBODY, ever thought of this little trick in KDE

Setting up my two boxes on the a local network with a router. A FC5-64 and FC4-i386 boxes, from my i386 box, using KDE Konqueror, in the Location box entering: fish://root@FC5-64 and typing in password for root@FC5-64, allows me to go into root of FC5-64 box and edit changes in files,etc. Fish in KDE uses SSH to connect to remote boxes. But the most unique feature is to Edit in a crashed Linux box: I put my #1 install cd into the FC5-x86_64 and did a "linux rescue" on cd and followed instructions to do a linux rescue, and doing a Network enable and after doing the chroot /mnt/sysimage and then doing a /sbin/service sshd start, then starting fish://root@FC5-64 in the i386 box, I was able to edit problems in the crashed x86_64 box.

You can even use Knoppix to do rescue:

Both the computer in question using Knoppix
Mount the drives
Enable networking and assign an IP
plug the computer on a hub (if wired)
boot the computer that will transfer/modify data on the target computer
Enable networking and assign an IP
plug computer if wired
then you can use Fish to do what you want to do.

I've used fish for quite a while to transfer data back and forth between two linux machines.
