Unfortunately i scoure the documentation, and there isn't even an install
doc. below is what i've got in my ssh dir after untarring and gunziping the
tarball. No install, no config no configure.. i'm a bit stumped. I got
the openssh-2.1.1.tzg off of the ftpsite. So I guess i'll
try a different tarball & version and see if that will help at all
