        I got a lot of replies back, and most of them said almost the
        same thing. Since there is a lot of people to thank, I will just
        say THANKS YOU ALL!

        The answer to my problem is that rsh does read my .cshrc file, but
        it does not read my .login file. I was setting my path environment
        on my .login file, so that's why it could not find the cvs command,
        which was on /usr/local/bin.

        I just add an entry on my .cshrc file, to take of the path problem.

        Thanks, again.
