I wonder if any readers will think that they need to save this fingerprint 
from the first startup (as if it would not be retrievable later).  On the 
other hand, talking about 'ssh-keygen -l -f 
/etc/ssh/' is not really appropriate here, I think.

I don't think this text necessarily has to change, though; it was just a 
thought that occurred to me.
