Can anybody help me with this : ?

I first generated rsa key with this :

ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key

then I went on to generate the DSA key too....(just incase my SSHD does not
like RSA).

ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key

and then I ran

root@00_00_09_PECA_NP1:/usr/bin# sshd -d -d -d -d -d -d -d -d -d
debug3: RNG is ready, skipping seeding
debug2: read_server_config: filename /etc/ssh/sshd_config
debug1: sshd version OpenSSH_3.7.1p2
debug3: Not a RSA1 key file /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key.
debug1: PEM_read_PrivateKey failed
debug1: read PEM private key done: type
Could not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
debug3: Not a RSA1 key file /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key.
debug1: PEM_read_PrivateKey failed
debug1: read PEM private key done: type
Could not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key
Disabling protocol version 2. Could not load host key
sshd: no hostkeys available -- exiting.

and this is how my sshd_config in /etc/ssh/ looks like:

# $OpenBSD: sshd_config,v 1.65 2003/08/28 12:54:34 markus Exp $

# This is the sshd server system-wide configuration file. See
# sshd_config(5) for more information.

# This sshd was compiled with PATH=/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin

# The strategy used for options in the default sshd_config shipped with
# OpenSSH is to specify options with their default value where
# possible, but leave them commented. Uncommented options change a
# default value.
