Once upon a time Steve Mallett shaped the electrons to say...

>I burned an .iso cd of the home dir of a server, 

What kind? Jouliett?
Did you da a "tar" or "cpio" first to save all links

>my .ssh files are there, but if I restore from the 
>cd using rsync -azurvp /mnt/cdrom/.ssh/* 
>~/.ssh the permissions seem screwy.

What are they?

>I'm trying to use my id_dsa ssh key to login to other servers, but
>they don't acknowledge the key because the "permission are incorrect".

>Any Suggestions?  Did i screwup, by using mkisofs & cdrecord to burn
>the cd?

The "private" key file MUST ONLY be readable to the user, no one else.
"chmod 600 "
