what is your ssh_config Protocol setting?
because i am sure even two OpenSSH 2 machines can be made to talk


As of OpenSSH 2.0, as well as supporting protocol versions 1.3 and
1.5, OpenSSH also has support the SSH protocol version 2.0. This
protocol avoids using the RSA algorithm -- since at the time protocol
2.0 was invented the RSA patent was still in effect -- and uses the
freely useable DSA algorithm instead.

anyway, about RSAREF (i am not sure i know exactly what RSAREF is as
opposed to RSA), i tried the whole thing with a new keypair that i
created using just ssh-keygen on the OpenSSH system... didn't work

can you find out somehow which protocol you are using? because i think
the connection ambriel->uriel will be SSH ver. 1.5, not 2.0...
