     53=== Retrieving Lost Keypair ===
     54If you lose your keypair then you need to:
     55* Create a new keypair in the AWS console & download the generated private key
     56* Stop the instance
     57* Create an AMI from this instance
     58* Wait for the AMI to be ready
     59* Launch a new instance using this AMI
     60* Re-associate the Public IP
     61* Delete the old instance
     62* Deregister the AMI
     63* Delete the snapshot used to create the AMI
