Tramp does not store passwords.  Or rather, it did not until very
recently.  I think the new password cache feature is not present in
2.0.x (2.0 is the stable branch), you'll need a recentish 2.1.x (2.1
is the development branch), or perhaps even the CVS version.

Please note that storing passwords in Emacs is a security issue.

Also investigate the ssh-agent feature which allows you to have ssh
store passwords (passphrases, rather) in a secure way.
