Thanks.  Is it also possible to have more than one set of keys per
user ?  I'm wanting to have a set of keys for my personal machines and
a set of keys for my work machines.  When I try to place two keys
inside the id_dsa file I can no longer login to any of the machines
which I've setup the authorized_keys file on.
