Best Live-CD Sys-Admin Distribution?

Hello guys! I am looking for a good live CD distribution, focused on:

- Low System Requirements but with X: Something which runs X but doesn't use much memory, so it can be run even in old computers (which means no kde or gnome! ).
- System Administration tools - for partitioning hard disk, mounting partitions, accessing network, etc.
- Large hardware and partition types support.
- Preferably (but not required) the ability to load the entire system into RAM (max. 512MB), leaving the CD-ROM drive free.

So, basically, a cd bootable system focused more on system administration than in "let's see how is the linux". If any guys could give me any distro suggestions, I would appreciate it so much!

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I didn't see that there is a "Linux - Distributions" main forum (I thought there would only be the subforums) so you can move it there if you want!
