Default ssh and PuTTY Configuration

I'm trying to configure PuTTY . . .running on a Windoze box to connect to FreeBSD. The PuTTY Configuration asks for a "Private key file for authentication", for example, E:\user\XYZ\ssh\id_rsa . . .simply a path to a file on the Windoze box.

Given the contents of the .\id_rsa file similar as follows (I've intentionally omitted and altered data for this example):

Proc-Type: 4,ENCRYPTED
DEK-Info: DES-EDE3-CBC,0973EX1F93B72DF7

(lines omitted here)

. . .I don't know exactly what the PuTTY system is looking for ...just that it's not connecting. Should the id_rsa file in the Windoze directory be edited to include only the key string as I've indicated in red, or include the Proc-Type and DEK-Info strings, too. Additionally, should the line feeds at the end of each line in the key string be removed?
