There are several mini-howtos out there.  It is pretty simple.  Use
ssh-keygen to make a key pair.  Put the private key where it belongs.
Put the public key where it belongs.  It should then just work, UNLESS
the system's sysadmin has disabled it

To help debug, remember ssh's debug feature.  ssh -v -v -v will give you
a LOT of information about why it fails, and just where it fails...
