PCLOS is the client and my lfs 6.5 is the server. Yes ssh host does
work in the terminal.

PCLOS is a Mandriva fork and they both use all those different drake
tools for a lot of the config stuff. I don't think PCLOS follows FHS
closely. vim behaves very strangely in PCLOS any way, not like Fedora,
Debian and LFS.
