*BSD based Live CD

Hey all,
I'm pretty new with linux, and I would like to try a version of Unix without having to either pay for it or actually install it on my computer, but I would like it to use a portion of my hard drive to save its config and program files onto. If you could recommend such a distro, and how to make it use my HD, please reply! I have an extremely good system (P4 2.4 ghz, 370mb ram, 60 gb HD, CD-Burner) so the distro doesn't have to be small.

I would reccommend Knoppix, as it's the most popular LiveCD.
Another good choice would be the SuSE LiveCD, which I've heard is very similar to the installed version of SuSE.
Both can be found on

Take a look at this:

A live cd based on freebsd. I've never used it before, so I wouldn't know how good or bad it is, but it does look like it is worth a look.
