SSH2 keys

Hi all,

As we're gradually upgrading workstations here, we're getting
ssh2 becoming the default on some machines.  If you wish to
generate a ssh2 key, do the following:

   $ ssh-keygen -t rsa
   $ cp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub ~/ssh/authorized_keys2
  [ if you have ssh-agent running ]
   $ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

If you wish to use DSA instead of RSA, replace all instances
of rsa with dsa in the above commands.

You should then be able to ssh around the office to all
workstations without a problem.

All that remains is to figure out how to automatically pick up
both ssh and ssh2 keys on login.  This should just be a matter
of adding the appropriate lines to .xsession or equivalent.
