Hi, I'm blind and I am trying to start grml64-full_2021.07.isoin a 
VirtualbBox virtual machine. I cannot seem to get the ssh daemon 
started. There doesn't seem to be much time to type in the 
"ssh=password" boot configuration parameter. What I do is to take a 
screen shot via the VirtualBox command. Then I run it through a optical 
char recognition program. This gives me a pretty good sense of what is 
on the screen. But no matter how fast I do it, I never seem to get a 
boot prompt.

I am thinking that maybe the process of typing in boot parms has changed 
since the switch to grub.
