rcp? grrrrgh... You really should not use these old tools any more -
they pass password information in plain text on the wire. Use scp
So when there is no password recorded in your /etc/passwd but you get
asked anyway for it there is a chance that you _need_ a root password
on the target system. I recommend to install one.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In
practice, however, there is.
