I did a silly thing and messed up my grub configuration on a
keyboardless server, so now it won't boot and I can't get in to make
the change. What I need is a Linux rescue CD that will:

(1) Auto-detect common net drivers (via-rhine)
(2) Auto-config network via dhcp
(3) Start sshd automatically

I've Googled the problem and see lots of configurable rescue CD
packages, but I don't have time to fiddle with one of them. Anyone
know of a bootable CD that can do these things so I can rescue my
server? Thanks!
There is no answer at this time.

Try gentoo rescue cd  but gentoo rescue cd doesnot start ssh
automatically so best solution would be to somehow add keyboard to
your server.
