When i try to generate a crypto key for SSH after setting a username, password and domain-name it will not recognise any 'crypto' commands..
i.e.  when using the command 'crypto key generate rsa ..'  in global config mode, i get an 'invalid commad' error

You are most likely not running an IOS that supports it.

Q. How do I get the cryptography features, and is there an additional charge for them?

A. The features with advanced cryptography (such as SSH, SSL, SCP, and SNMPv3) are packaged in a special "k9" version of the Cisco Catalyst 2960 LAN Base and LAN Lite IOS images. You must go to the Software Download Center on Cisco.com to get the "k9" software versions and upgrade your switches. There is no additional charge for this software version.

Right from the Cisco site.
