os.popen2 is not available to windows programmers but
win32pipe came to the rescue !!. win32pipe I think is available
from the following location
Got something like the following to work ....
stdin, stdout = win32pipe.popen2("rsh <hostname> -l <username>
stdin.write("<whatever you want to write to stdin !!>")
print stdout.readlines() # This will print the result.
