Hve you tweaked sshd_config?  There are plenty of how-to's out there, but essentially,
you uncomment the following in the coonfig file:

    RSAAuthentication yes
    PubkeyAuthentication yes

Additionally, I added:

    PasswordAuthentication yes
    ChallengeResponseAuthentication no

Also, take a look at the use of ssh-agent and ssh-add.  The man pages will work for you,
and there are many how-to's and tutes.

You might also want to use Keychain (www.gentoo.org/proj/en/keychain/).

HTH.
