Data Protector Installation Guide Needs Amendment for SSH Linux Remote Installation

The Data Protector Installation Guide has a section for remote installation of Data Protector to a new Linux client using a Linux Installation Server.  However the procedure as written does not work.  Data Protector is apparently sensitive to whether you use RSA keys or DSA keys.   It does not work with RSA keys, but does work with DSA keys.

Additionally, when generating the keys, you need to use the default key file name, rather than placing one in the command line to ssh-keygen.
