GPG, subkeys smartcard and computer

Things are getting clearer now, the fact is: subkeys are not related and
basically only the last generated is used. I missunderstood this step.
I need a Auth subkey on the smartcard becuase I've setup the server to
access ssh only via a key. If I'm not at my pc I can't access the server,
and this may be a problem. However, with a smartcard I may overcome the
problem by using any pc.
Probably is the same as having a ssh key stored on a usb and use it when
I'm not on my laptop (and throw it away afterward, just in case). but this
is outside the gpg list ;)
