In any case, I am trying to configure ssh/svn. My instructions say to do this, but I am at a loss on how to do it. I am logged on to the server and I see the unix command prompt, "user@servname:~$"
* have a .ssh directory whose permissions have been set as chmod 700 .ssh
* cd to the .ssh directory and create an authorized_keys file.
* Cut and paste the contents from the generated public key. The generated public key will look like:
---- BEGIN SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----
---- END SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----
How in the world do I do this?

Do you have an X server (graphical server) on your local machine? If so you can enable X forwarding and do it all graphically. We can talk you through that if you'd like.
If not in a terminal you canCode:
mkdir .ssh chmod 700 .ssh cd .ssh vim authorized_keys
Obviously that would seem more natural to you if you were doing it graphically but that is a very direct way to get the job done.
