You can do all of the above with a good Knoppix Live CD. However, to log into it with SSH, now that is more difficult. I've done it before, but not without help. If you google Knoppix LIve-CD, you can download one of the many remakes of knoppix. There should be a security suit Knoppix IO image, I believe. I know there is a anti-security remake download, so go take a look.
PS. From what I read, Damn Small Linux works well from a CD, but I prefer Knoppix. Also, if you plan on using the CD alot, it helps to have a lot of RAM, like more than 128MB. YOu can then make the ramdisk larger.
