questions about ssh2

We use ssh religiously in our office and rely heavily upon ssh keys to
easily move back and forth between all the hosts we use. After
installing ssh2, I read from the ssh-keygen2 man page that it can
migrate ssh1 keys to ssh2, but it only understands the DSS cipher. Sure
enough, I am unable to migrate my keys. Therefore, I find myself
frustrated that we will have to generate new keys and disseminate them
all over again. What a pain! Please tell me that I am wrong and that
there is a less painful way to upgrade to ssh2.

I also found that the latest versions of TTSSH and NiftyTelnet will not
connect to the sshd2 server. Can I configure the server so that it will
allow ssh 1.xx connections, or are there alternative desktop clients
that I can offer our staff?
