Slack-alike live-cd distros??

Hi people, i'm about to set up 3 diskless boxes, so i'm on the look of the live-cd distro which suits me the most.
The problem is i haven't tried any of them.

Which is the most slack-alike live-cd distro out there??
Which ones have you tried?? What strenghs and flaws have you found???

You might want to check the Linux Terminal Service Prodject out.

Slack 8.1 does have a live bootable CD as part of their CD set. It is "disk 2" in case you just want to download the image.

The problem is, I don't think it is very good. Your milage may vary, because I don't know what your needs are.

There also are Knoppix, Virtual Linux, and Linixcare BBC, which are three, non slackware based, yet very good bootable CDs.

So, what are your needs anyway?
