been a while since i set this up, so please help me fill in the gaps...

i set up a keypair on my laptop (ubu 11) and put the pub key on my server at
home (ubu 11).
i have RSAAuthentication set to 'yes' and AuthorizedKeysFile set to
(does this mean that the keyfile should be in the subdir 'authorized_keys'

Yet, when I connect with
ssh -2 -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa user at server
it still asks for my login account password and not the key password...

What did I miss?

Thanks (as always) for the help...
