--> No, this will also work from Windows to Linux. You have to use the
graphical interface of PuTTY to define which key to use for a given
user@host configuration. If you specify this configuration on the
commandline for PuTTY ssh or scp, it will use the key defined above.

Use "puttygen.exe" to create keys. Then you have to upload the
"keyname.pub" file to your SSH server and add it to the
~/.ssh/authorized_keys file.

HTH,
Armin
