thanks for your response.  My problem is that after I answer
yes to continue I am able to snoop my passwd over the network.

That is just stating that ssh currently does not know the RSA/DSA
public key for machine in which your logging into, and therefor is
asking you if it's the right fingerprint.  Which it will save for later
use.  It's normal.  After the first time connecting to a host that
messages goes away.
