"Live" Distro w/games


I'm hoping that someone can help here.
My father is starting to show signs of Alzhiemers, and the Dr. has told me that playing tetris-like games and puzzle games on the computer would be a good excersize for his mind. The real problem is that he has never learned to use a computer, so my need is...I really like the large selection of games on FC2, but I need a distro that has a "Live" version that will also contain a large number of games. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

This might help:

This is a small slackware distro. If you go to the homepage's modules section it shows how to build additional modules. That should let you install whatever you want to the iso.
Sorry to hear about your dad, best wishes.

Also sorry to hear about your dad.

knoppix is a very good live distro for games.

www.knopper.net

It runs extremely well off of a cd and it is also based on Debian, so it is rock solid.
