You shouldn't have to do anything but install the rpm and copy that key.  But, 
you should have an nx user that the rpm creates, and you may have to allow 
password authentication.  The client first connects with ssh as the nx user, 
using the key and no password, then passes your login and password over that 
encrypted connection - but I'm not sure if it uses ssh to authenticate with the 
password at that point.
