Yep, I got my key based auth working great now. I also took the time to
disable all other auth. Did "/etc/init.d/ssh restart" and checked again and
all is well. I carry my public and private key on my thumb drive and the
private key is protected with a passphrase.
Whoops .. do not carry your private key around. No. Keep it somewhere
only you can access and rsik of loosing it is zilch - almost.
