I did the same.

Also same here.

I might have done something wrong here, my /etc/hosts.equiv looks

+thebetteros root
+thebetteros fpage
+thebetteros rscsi
+debian root
+debian fpage
+debian rscsi

thebetteros, debian and are all the same machine.

I also get 

~# rlogin wintendo
Telnetted successfully to Wintendo ...
hostname: gethostname: Operation not permitted

Although the telnet seems to work fine, maybe someone could point me
to a FM?

Thanks anyway and kind regards.
