thanks so much for your friends help.
i got it solved!! this is exactly bcos of the permission setting:
it works correctly after I did the following:
$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh
$ chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
thanks for all of you.

sorry that I am a newbie to fedora FC5, I used to be in Solaris
No need to be sorry. :)
i could not configure correctly for public key ssh login as I used
to do in Solaris.
1) cat my public key and put in my $fedora_user/.ssh/authorized_keys
What are the permissions on ~/.ssh and on ~/.ssh/authorized_keys?
OpenSSH is particular about them and won't use the key if the
permissions on the file or directory are too lax. I set ~/.ssh to 700
and authorized_keys to 600 and ssh is happy.
2) configure fedora's /etc/ssh/sshd_config, uncomment the following
It doesn't hurt, but you don't need to do this because the values
specified in sshd_config are the defaults.
However, ssh login still prompts me for password.....
What is the prompt? It may be a prompt for the password of your key,
unless the key has no password (which is bad) or you are using the
ssh-agent and have already added your key to the agent.
