--> you can create a copy of "/etc/init.d/sshd" and tell this copy to
start the SSHD daemon with a different configuration file like:
startproc ... /usr/sbin/sshd -f /etc/ssh/sshd_config_external ...

Then you can use "insserv sshd_external" to create the necessary
run-level links.

Make sure you change "$SSHD_PIDFILE" as well so that
"/etc/init.d/sshd_external stop" will kill the right SSHD process.

Have fun!
