I don't have rsh installed on my machines any more, but I had
a similar situation with telnet.  

Try this:  Go into /etc/xinetd.d and see if you have a file
for rsh.  If so, edit it and see if there is a line that says
"disable = yes".  If so, change the yes to no.  In my case with
telnet, even after I turned the service on in system-config-services,
it did not remove that line and did not start the service.

If there is nothing related to rsh in /etc/xinetd.d, please ignore
this post.
