Why would you need it to be the default shell?
I believe it will be very hard to find, since Linux almost only uses Bash (and for live cds, sometimes sh or the light-weight ash)
I have looked around and found no live cd with ksh. Your best bet is to get any live cd, then install ksh or pdksh on it after booting.
Why ksh anyway?
