Thanks for suggestion, will be included in the next kernel build -
see http://bts.grml.org/grml/issue216

Boot with 'grml ssh=password_of_your_choice' :)

Are you talking about live-mode?  If so then check out the
possibitilies of the config framework: http://grml.org/config/ ->
http://grml.org/config/grml-config.html which gives you flexibility
in saving and restoring configuration. Hint: /etc/network/interfaces
is the place where network configuration takes place at Debian/grml.
