I've been bitten by this a little bit before too. Some additional
things to try besides what rgb said:
add your public key to the file .ssh/authorized_keys
> cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
make sure that both authorized_keys and your private key are not
readable by others besides you.
> chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
> chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
