I do not have access to a monitor/keyboard at the moment and was wondering if I use the USB cable, install the windows driver (win7) if I could boot it up this way and use something like putty to access the SSH client ? Was not sure if the raspi-config file has ssh enabled by default on the Raspbian version of the software ? thanks

Then i rebooted, logged back in and ran sudo apt-get install ssh and sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start. plugged in a network cable and got the ip using /sbin/ifconfig. Opened another putty session entered the IP, selected SSH but nothing - kept getting network error - timed out :( Then I remembered that the WIN7 machine was running Symantec Endpoint Protection. Once I disabled that was able to login fine using SSH. Thanks everyone !
