I have been curious about the SecureID card portion. I use the SecureID
fob's for work and like it. I've always had it on my to-do list to try to
configure my SSH server to use my current SecureID but haven't gotten
around to it.  Does anybody know what it takes to do this? or at least
where an FAQ might exist that explains the setup (and requirements). Also 
if there is any cost associated with it?
