No need to remember that URL; the online help tells you ;-)

  What keysize do you want? (2048) ?
  Enter the size of the key.  
  The suggested default is usually a good choice.
  If you want to use a large key size, for example 4096 bit, please
  think again whether it really makes sense for you.  You may want 
  to view the web page http://www.xkcd.com/538/ .
