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?
