My *guess* would be that the sshd2 files are for ssh protocol version 
2.   sshd is probably capable of doing both (lots of client programs do 
both, anyhow), and it's possible that you'd want different preferences 
depending upon the protocol being used.

That said, how old is your FC2 system?  Oftentimes older config files 
just get left around, so if you've had the setup a while it's also 
possible one of these sets of files just isn't being used any more.
