ZMLarch boot switches
Beginning with ZMLarch_svn_2917 (aka 1.24.2_pre1) there are some useful boot switches and liveCD enhancements. By hitting the "tab" key at the liveCD boot menu you can append to the boot cmdline.
Adding "sshd"(quotes not required) will cause the ssh server to be started at bootup. This may be desirable for remote access to install on a machine without a graphic display for example.
For this to be useful a root password must be set. Otherwise there is no way to login remotely.
Adding "passwd=secret" to the cmdline string will set the root password to "secret"
