Thanks very much, Doug. I'll give this a shot tonight. This is basically 
what I tried to do, except that I used rsa key instead of dsa, did not 
know about having the public key file unreadable to others, placed it
~/.ssh/authorized_keys directory (is authorized_keys2 in your example a 
plain file?), and didn't use :ext: in the -d option to cvs. I guess 
there's planty here that would have made it not work.:)
