[maemo-developers] Installing SSH

In InstallSsh (https://maemo.org/maemowiki/InstallSsh), I am directed to
store the public key in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys-file.  Then it says, "To get
the public key-file to the Nokia 770 [800, in my case], use USB, bluetooth,
mail ...".  I am missing something basic here.  When I connect the N800 to
my Kubuntu 6.10 machine, it gets mounted under /media and two icons appear
on the desktop.  (Why two?  One is labeled usbdisk and looks like a USB
key, the other usbdisk-1 and looks like a folder.  I see the same contents
whichever I open.)  I presume that I can copy the authorized_keys-file to
the folder to get it to the N800, but then how do I get it into the ~/.ssh
directory?  I can create a new folder in the Konqueror window I get when I
click on either icon, but if I call it .ssh, will it be ~/.ssh?  In other
words, where am I when I open /media/usbdisk?  I was hoping to find a
console on the N800 in which I could type Unix commands, but there doesn't
seem to be one.
