Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've been searching the livecd list but most livecd sites don't have good answer on what I search.
I want a livecd with at least python, php and mysql and the modules needed to use them together. I'd like it to be debian-based though slackware is ok too. I found slax looks like it could support my wishes pretty well with the modules you can put in yourself. Am I right? The thing that worries me is that looking through the modules list I get the feeling it doesn't have many 'standard' programs in it. I also can't find a list of software that is in the default cd and that it doesn't look like it has another window manager than kde in it.
For knoppix I think it's too large and from the documentation I think it's not easy to change things via windows before burning the cd.
Also is there maybe another option I could use to get the following (making the bootcd myself or another livecd I have missed?):
-uptodate x with lightweight wm (kde or gnome may be there too as long as I can choose)
-python, mysql, apache and php
-multimediaplayer (mplayer preferably for video)
