Thanks to some quick responses, I now have OpenSSH working on my machine.
As it turns out, in the last couple of days, a new OpenSSH package came
out on I deleted all the keys and uninstalled
OpenSSH version 3.5.1p1, and then installed the new OpenSSH package
(3.6.1p1) and a newer version of OpenSSL (0.9.7a) from SunFreeware. Some
other suggestions included:

Mike (of Mike's List) suggested:

try ssh -l <username> <ip> and see if this helps...try ip instead of
hostname etc. He also mentioned that more Sun
packages can be found at:

Brian Pardy suggested deleting any keys in $HOME/.ssh. While that didn't
help, it did lead me to attempt to connect using Protocol 1, which worked,
but I still couldn't get Protocol 2 to work before upgrading to the just
released version. 

I'm not sure if there was a bug, some other conflict between the
first version of OpenSSH (3.5.1p1) and something on my system, or just
that something became corrupted. Anyway, it is now working.

Thanks to everyone that responded. Original post is below.
