[CentOS-docs] update HOWTO page for how to copy ssh pub keys

the recipe for how to copy your id_rsa.pub file to a remote system is
given as:

"Copy the public key (id_rsa.pub) to the server and install it to the
authorized_keys list:

$ cat id_rsa.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys"

  i suspect it would be better if that were rewritten in terms of
using ssh-copy-id, just to be simpler and less error-prone.
