  Surely you can.  If you can ping the LiveCD box then that's OK.  Be
sure you have the ssh deamon running on that box.  It is called sshd
and must be launched as root.  Since I haven't used the LiveCD for a
long time, I can't tell if it's there, but if not, it's easy to compile
right on the spot.  

  So, launch sshd on the LiveCD box and from the laptop use one of the
ssh commands as per the previous post.

  Once you get this working don't forget that if you need to copy files
to the LiveCD box you can use the scp command, as in, for the fstab

scp fstab root at

  Or if you want to get files from the LiveCD box to the current
directory on your laptop, for instance the inputrc file:

scp user at .

Have fun,
