Change SSH key strenght

I am starting to use SSH on Nw65sp4. I notice by default the key strength
is only 768 bit. I want to go to 2048 bit. So if I understand I need to use
dsakey.ncf, rsakey.ncf or rsa1key.ncf and change the strength to 2048 to
generate a key?

Which of those 3 ncf files do I use??

Second question: After I accomplish above I assume I need to change the key
strenght line in my sshd_config to read 2048??

Third question: Why do the text gui screens, ie monitor.nlm, edit.nlm, not
paint properly when you ssh to netware?
