I think there's an option somewhere in /etc/ssh/sshd_config that disables passwords, but I could be mistaken...

Check over this site. About half down it mentions the required permissions for the files using the chmod command. Check to see if your directories and files are the correct permissions.

To have it use public-key authentication, you must either:
* load the private key in Putty (Connection -> SSH -> Auth -> Private key file for authentication) or
* load the private key into Pageant and have Pageant running
