rsh, rcmd, rexec, rcp are a family that you really already have as cvs depends on them.

Configuring is a matter of setting up /etc/.rhosts or $HOME/.rhosts but I would strongly recommend using openssh unless you have no other option.

What distribution are you using?

If you have a choice then go with openssh like Porter suggested. just google "ssh tutorial" and you will find many links. avoid rsh and other r* commands like the plague.
