Kefeng is correct that you should setup your ssh keys so that you
aren't prompted for a password, but that isn't the cause of your
failure. The problem appears to be that orted (one of the Open MPI
commands) is not in your path on the remote node. You should take a
look at one of the other FAQ sections on the setup required for Open
MPI in an rsh/ssh type environment.

Hope this helps,
