okay, that was a bit terse...

for passwordless SSH-ing, try this (and feel free to augment or
correct if i overlook something)--

	localbox$ ssh-keygen -t dsa

after some q&a (just answer with blanks, for passwordless
connections) this creates a ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub file that you can
append to your remote systems' ~/.ssh/authorized_keys files:

	localbox$ scp ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub me@remotebox:~/.ssh/localboxKey
	localbox$ ssh me@remotebox
	remotebox$ cd ~/.ssh
	remotebox$ cat localboxKey >> authorized_keys
	remotebox$ chmod 600 authorized_keys
	remotebox$ rm localboxKey
	remotebox$ logout


	localbox$ ssh me@remotebox
	<no password needed!>

now you're all set for passwordless login!

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #18 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com>
How do you DISABLE A NETWORK SERVICE? There are several ways
network services are made available: for inetd items, modify
/etc/inetd.conf and then "/etc/init.d/inetd restart". For
independently-running daemons, try "/etc/init.d/<daemon> stop"
(or to permanently zap them, "apt-get --purge remove <daemon>").
