Automatically accepting the hostkey

Hi,
I have a script which uploads a file to a freshly installed linux machine.when I do that it asks for adding the hostkey to cache. I found that there is a option called '-hostkey<fingerprint>'.I am in a situation where I will not know the ssh fingerprint.Is there any other way to bypass this.

Automatically accepting the hostkey

Are there any options that I can specify in the script to bypass the authentication of ssh-2,which can be done in the GUI?even this will do for me.

Please read FAQ. If that does not help, come back.
