Ubuntu's live cd prompted me to do a full install. Needless to say I was impressed. Found all my hardware and my network and worked 100%. It has my vote!

What is a good live cd that
1) can find and auto config DHCP
2) can fit on a 650MB CD
3) and is for a guy who knows linux like the back of his hand

have you tried the LFS live CD??

I'm torn between Knoppix and SystemRescueCD (can't check if that was on the list since I already voted the first option) The first is a very complete selection, recognises everything I need it to and has several GUI choices. The second is fast, small, but very complete if you know how to work from the cli.

if you have a dhcp for your internet Knoppix is not for you

I tried LFS and i didn't like it
I need something that is like linspire live that autoconf your internet and screen size

So much choices!

Why is the ubuntu live cd listed when the Suse live cd is? I vote +1 for ubuntu live

Daengbo 01-30-2006 08:41 AM

Ubuntu Live CD
 
Works for me every time without a lot of switches at the prompt, like in Knoppix. Add it to the poll, please, and cast my vote for it.

Added Ubuntu Live.

Having Knoppix around is like having a medkit for computers with you...I always rescue those poor windows users with broken pcs by booting with knoppix and copying their data before formatting...they always get those big wtf is this eyes when they see it :D

If we're talking about using it as a livecd and not installed then it has to be my first ever linux distro.

SLAX.

I like Kanotix. Good hardware detection, nice selection of programs and utilities.

mjjzf 01-30-2006 03:05 PM

Knoppix is a classic, but Slax fits in my time manager...
I was impressed with the boot time of Archie, by the way - and the power of Freesbie.

PC Linux OS is the best Live cd and more complete it could be the best distro but needs some working on the installer.
