Post bootable repair linux distribution

Well, first of all I'm curious about whether this is already a distribution of linux... I would like a distribution of linux that is bootable from a cd and once it has booted it is accessible from a ssh. Then once I'm connected and all, the hard drives (most likely FAT or NTFS file system) should be mounted, then I could run programs remotely, such as scan for viruses. I'm also wondering if there is any kind of linux antivirus software which is intended to detect and remove WINDOWS viruses... This idea may have already been implemented, or even something similar... What I was thinking was that I'm going to college soon and I think it would be pretty interesting to have a cd that I could give someone with computer problems (such as a virus) have them boot from the cd, then fix it from my dorm room. Plus, I'm a little bored... my girlfriend doesn't get back from Korea for a week or so, and I'd like to see if I could learn a thing or two in my spare time . Anyway, just curious...

You could create your own bootable CD using LifeBoat and build a modified LifeBoat system that meets your specs.
