cyber caffe


I'm looking around the net and can't find. Is there a distribution of Linux to be used in cyber caffe?

I will have public computers with internet acces. And the internet use will be for free. So it's not a normal cyber caffe.

I just need something that is so secure that nobady can mess up with setings and only thing can do is running Mozzila and surfing on the net. Nothing else. No IRC and stuff like that.

I know I can make my own distribution, but first I would like to know if anybody else has done this before. I wouldn't like to inovate hot water.

Tnx for any help.

Thank you for your answer. First I will try some Linux on CD versions ( If there will be no success I will try Kiosk mode.

In your link, there's a lot of text, but it does not explicitly say what to do to disable programs and modifications. I will study this text later on if I need to.
