I have heard of private key but how to set it up and/or use with SSH and rsync is beyond my expertise.  How about a little pointer?

Starting with:

% rsync -avz /home/$this_account/folder_to_backup/ $remote_account@$remote_domain.com:/home/$remote_account/backups/ --password-file=/home/$this_account/password_file

My plan is to first get this working from one HG account to another, then look into some of the other recommended options for storage, backup, other VPS services etc.
