From the sounds of things, you would probably be better off making a
custom key with sshd running at boot, password logins turned off,
and your public key listed as an authorized key. I have not used it,
but the software to make your own live cd is available in the
repositories. Maybe someone would be kind enough to give you the
package name, and a pointer to the HOWTO page. (I can not remember
them right now.)
