Public Key Authentication - Update

Turns out it's not easy to uninstall Ubuntu's encrypted home directory feature either, at least not while logged in over an ssh session. All I succeeded in doing when attempting to uninstall was screwing up both computers so bad I can't log in to them any more, and losing all my files. (Luckily there wasn't much on there yet to lose.)

As long as I have to go to trouble of digging these computers out and hooking up a keyboard and monitor so I can reinstall everything, I'm going to put Debian on them instead.
