Hmm. My RH box had a 'user-ssh-config' and a 'server-ssh-config' scripts that
generated those nicely for me. Both dsa and rsa keys.
Just did a 'ls -ld /usr/local/bin/*ssh*' to find them.

Yup. Why the other day I (A) was telnet'ed into a box (B), ssh'd into 
another (C) and then ssh'd from there to (D) (due to firewall reasons), 
and then ran Netscape on (D) forwarding the X session back to (C),
which then forwarded back to (B), which then forwarded back to me on 
(A), where I was running Cygwin/XFree86 with icewm.

Very cool, indeed. Made the Sun guys drool, and the NT guys just lost it.
I can hear their screams now... "UN-FSCK-IN-BELIEV-ABLE!"

Then I fired up TuxRacer. :)

Too bad they spent all that money on Win2K Terminal Server licenses.
