It uses setuid to do some wigged-out rhosts-like auth.  It's not
necessary, you can run entirely in user-space.  RSAAuthentication is the
best form and it doesn't require setuid.

Yup, <>

If that won't go through your firewall from the win32 box you can try a
ssh to ssh tunnel through a unix box.  i.e. make CVS_RSH on the NT box ssh
to a unix box which then does an ssh to taz.
