The problem is that ssh subsystem cannot create known_hosts file because 
its parent directory ".ssh" does not exist. Try creating a directory 
named ".ssh" under your user home directory (usually it is c:\Documents 
and Settings\<username>\). Windows Explorer has problems with creating 
directories starting with period ".", so use command prompt and execute 
"mkdir .ssh".

After that, you will be asked to accept the server only once, and 
hopefully never again... :-)

Hope this helps,
