    This depends in part on the implementation. Using OpenSSH/Cygwin?

    create .ssh dir in the user's "home" directory -- this of course
    will depend on the creation of an /etc/passwd file via 'mkpasswd' --
    depending on the options, it will either be /Documents and Settings/<username>
    or /home/<username> or something else.

    for each user do an ssh-keygen, etc. and copy the trusted pub keys
    to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys.

    If you're not using OpenSSH/Cygwin, you should be ;-)
