1. you need a keypair. Unless you have it already, you generate one
with ssh-keygen. There, you have the choice to let it use the default
file name (typically, ~/.ssh/id_rsa and ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub or similar,
depending on the key type) and whether you want the private key
protected by a passphrase (recommended, but you have to unlock it
either with ssh-add or whatever mechanism your desktop environment
has for you).
2. you copy the public part to the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys of the server's
user you want to log into -- there's the handy "ssh-copy-id" for that.
From the client
ssh-add # if not done already
ssh-copy-id user@server # enter for one last time user's password there
This is the bird's view. Ask if you get stuck.
