Smile Live "Educational" Distro with coding & debugging tools wanted [GCC/DDD/valgrind] etc


I am looking for a Linux Live CD/DVD distribution, which concentrates on system level development & understanding.
I require a minimum of the GNU C/C++ Compiler, GDB, DDD, gvim, Xemacs etc & process and memory & packet analysis tools[Wireshark].

I do not require all that office apps
& I do not require all that security, firewall, hardened kernel etc.

Security should be ZERO & I should be able to peek & poke wherever I want :-)

Will be glad if it bootroots directly, has telnet & apache running on the fly.

The basic idea is to have a distro, that would be useful to learn a platform's architecture. for example studying how the call stack works in SPARC by analyzing memory & processor registers. This requires all the required tools, processor reference manuals etc all present in one CD!

If nothing is there, then I have to sit & make the distro :-(

You cannot because it's a protected mode OS, if you could peek and poke wherver you want, you could crash the system.
