+******* IMPORTANT
+* On systmes which lack a /dev/random driver, this port of
+* OpenSSH-1.2.2 was not correctly seeding OpenSSL's random number
+* pool. This resulted in lower quality RSA keys being generated. If
+* you generated host or user keys with v1.2.2, please generate new
+* ones using a more recent version.
+
This is the port of OpenBSD's excellent OpenSSH to Linux and other
Unices.
