Bug Description

Finnix 120 (Thank you!!)

It would be nice to SSH into a machine running finnix 120. This is a bit difficult with the current setup. One must edit the configuration file (and know how to change it).

Password enabled login would be useful. One thing you could do is change PermitRootLogin to yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. This still leaves the user setting the root password at the machine's console, probably an acceptable security requirement. Or let us know what the password for the "finnix" user is (and force them to su to root if that's what they want to do).

Thank you.

_Some_ sort of improvement on the state of affairs is needed.
