	This is indeed one method, which will prompt you for info (by
default).  If you have spent some time reading the various neat things
about ssh and it's friends, you can also use ssh-agent to log you in
automagically.  There's no need to use anything like expect or some other
method for unattented operation.
	p.s. the man pages are your friend. :)
