SSH rsa key


hey all,

So I have become very confused about passwordless logon using ssh. I have a clustering program that requires ssh with rsa auth.
The manual tells me to do
Code:
ssh-keygen -t rsa
then when asked where hit enter and when asked for a password hit enter. It then says to move the contents of the id_rsa.pub to a file called authorized_keys on the slaves.
I did the command on my master and on my slave I have made a file called authorized_keys which is a copy of id_rsa.pub which came from the master computer. It doesn't work I believe there is something that I am doing wrong but I don't know. I had a quick google but got confused between the different types of auth. Any help would be great.

Cheers,

PB

[edit] This is on a Suse 10.0 system, connected to a Giga switch.
