	I got it working between two nodes on the same machine.

Here's what I've got:

	Both systems are Darwin 7.3 (MacOS X 10.3.3).  I grabbed the latest 
erlang/OTP from source.  The machines are on the same subnet (I'm on 
one of them and sshed into the other).

dustinti:~/prog/snippets/erlang 507% erl -name dustinti -setcookie hi
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.3 [source]

Eshell V5.3  (abort with ^G)
(dustinti@REDACTED)1> auth:cookie().
(dustinti@REDACTED)2> net:ping('rubik@REDACTED').

rubik:~/prog/snippets/erlang 506% erl -name rubik -setcookie hi
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.3 [source]

Eshell V5.3  (abort with ^G)
(rubik@REDACTED)1> auth:cookie().

	I've been using a cookie that was auto-generated on one machine and 
copied to the other.

SPY                      My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
