I've created a bootable linux cd ISO image which has ssh enabled and alows 
login as root. I thought this might be also usefull for you, because I was 
searching around the net for such a cd and did not find anything which was 
working out of the box. The ISO can also be written to a USB stick and used 
as bootmedia, but this I have not tested yet.

The ISO is based on the well known SystemRescue CD:

The cd contains many usefull tools for different administrative tasks, see 
here for more infos about the included tools, but the programms which need a 
grafical environment will not be useable:

If a package is missing it can be installed after booting the cd, the whole 
system is based on Arch linux. So it should be possible to also install and 
run brltty for example....

You can download the ISO file with ssh deamon enabled here:

After booting the cd your computer will get a dynamic ip address in your 
network. You can get this address e.g. by scanning your network or via your 
routers webinterface. If you know the address you can connect via ssh with 
the following userdata:

Username: root
Password: geheim

I am using the cd to install new linux machines or as a rescue system for my 
home server or VServers which I am administrating and which are running at a 

If new versions of the SystemRescue CD will be available I'll update the ISO 
with the enabled ssh daemon on my server to always have the actual versions 
of the tools included on the cd.

If you have questions or ideas regarding the cd just let me know!

Have fun with the ISO, I hope you find the cd also that usefull and 
helpfull as I do ;-).
