  This example starts up an xclock on the remote system.  The easy way
  to test this for now is to rlogin to the system and type the
  commands.  Once something works you can write some shell scripts and
  use rsh to run them:

  hydra is being used to login to oscar and start graphics on oscar.
  oscar is displaying the pandora login when this is done:

  hydra 2% rlogin oscar -l root
  oscar 1# /usr/gfx/stopgfx     (screen blanks)
  oscar 2# chkconfig windowsystem on
  oscar 3# setenv DISPLAY :0.0  (display on local screen)
  oscar 4# /usr/bin/X11/X &  (start Xsgi)
  oscar 5# xclock &  (clock is displayed)

  To clean up:

  oscar 6# /usr/gfx/stopgfx     (screen blanks)
  oscar 7# /usr/gfx/startgfx  (re-start pandora)
