If you cannot figure out a way to buid your own LiveCD with SSHD enabled 
with livecd-tools
at this stage, you might consider looking into Kadischi. It provides a 
services menu after the initial installation
process of the soon-to-be rootfs which allows you to configure the 
services you want started, login accounts you would
like to create, and enables you to toggle and configure the firewall to 
your needs before the ISO is created.
You can get it from here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Kadischi

Though, from what I've been told, and I know it should be possible to 
easily hack in these features
you actually can enable SSHd and add openssh-server and openssh-clients 
as packages.
