Section Number and Name:
5.1.1 Getting started - Prerequisites
Describe the issue:
When issuing the documented command: "ssh-keygen -f id_rsa -t rsa -N", the key files will be generated in the home directory, instead of the .ssh directory.
By removing "-f id_rsa", they will be created in the .ssh directory.
When issuing the following documented command "ssh-copy-id -i root@server", the command will not be able to find the key, unless you have put them in the .ssh directory.
Suggestions for improvement:
Remove -f id_rsa from first command
