Linux Live with NTFS automount, Reiserfs?


I'm looking for a Live distro which will automount NTFS drives and which supports the ReiserFS filesystem. And the distro has be to useable from a USB CD-ROM drive, which I believe effectively rules out the recent Knoppix distros. I also need a GUI to be included, doesn't matter which one.

Any suggestions?

when i used mandrake it could read ntfs by default. other distros can mount ntfs, you just have to add the module and change your fstab. google will tell you how.

Yes, I know that under many distros it's possible to read NTFS, but I believe my question was quite specific (isn't that what the forum rules tell us?). I'm looking for a live distro which automounts NTFS drives.
