    Knoppix STD is my fave.

    Liberty not only means that the individual has both the opportunity and the burden of choice;
    it also means that he must bear the consequences of his actions.
    Liberty and responsibility are inseparable.

    - Friedrich Hayek

      Play with F.I.R.E.

      Give F.I.R.E. a shot, it kicks ass. Mostly for a security standpoint, not as much as general use. (although I use it for general use as well)

      Knoppix kicks ass as well.

        Knoppix is a sexually transmitted disease now? Scary...

            This is what prompted this question, I like the 185mb size.

            Although its not Slackware live have you tried Gnoppix .

            Yes, Knoppix is nice but for some reason it wont boot on my laptop, it will boot on my other computers just not my laptop, slackware live does just fine on it though.

              For today's modern Linux zealot on the go, there's MandrakeMove, a live distribution designed to be used in conjunction with a USB pen drive for storing your personal data and settings.

                I would recommend trying out Morphix
                The essential feature of complex behavior is the ability to perform transitions between different states ... Complexity is concerned with systems in which evolution, and hence history plays or has played an important role in the observed behavior.

                  Well I guess slackware live is a winner atleast for my daughter, she would rather have slackware in and running than a windows game.

                    L.A.S. Linux

                    Came across L.A.S.(Local Area Security) Linux a few months ago. Pretty cool, as it comes bundled with roughly 200 administration and security tools. Check it out.
                    You're either on my side or else you're in the way.

                      Good list! Although it is not exactly in the same boat, Trinux is well worth checking out, and it has .iso images for putting the whole shebang on one disk..

                        I really like p.h.l.a.k, as mentioned briefly in that list.

                        the .2 release sucked, it was unstable, and seems to have bad hardware compatability, but the .2-1 release works wonderfully for me and my friends now. its currently our primary live distro, used with fluxbox : )
                        Ulch - that meat was tainted! You feel deathly sick.
                        Its ok, you don't like everything, and everyone doesn't like you, so it balances out.

                          I'll vote for Slackware Live, now known as Slax. Chock-full of Slackware goodness in a bootable distro. http://www.slax.org/

                              name is kinda dweeby, but it is a full featured tool kit

                              good options, what I want to try is one of those boot from a usb key ring things.
