I like sidux in a number of ways --and it just keeps getting better every release. But as a LiveCD, one of the originals is still my favorite: MEPIS.
Running as a LiveCD I can get online with wifi using the Mepis Network Assistant that I couldn't successfully configure with sidux.
The post above that mentioned the on-disk User's Manual has a good point. For newbs, having a full manual right on the CD that includes everything from DL & burning ISO, installing, configuring scads of HW devices. . . it doesn't get better than this anywhere, AFAIK. GParted makes partitioning easy whether you want to install Mepis or just use it as a LiveCD toolkit, although it takes longer to boot than the GParted distro or PartedMagic, because of the full KDE.
I do use other LiveCds in the course of repairing computers. But I'd have to estimate I use Mepis as much or more than the rest put together.
