Question seti, boot from floppy or CD for linux-cluster WU crunching

Hi everybody,
As I have some excess hardware of Pentium-II class, I would like to upgrade my seti@home-performance...

- I need a floppy disk from which a small linux boots (or a CD?)
- then seti should be run constantly (keeping the WU in a RAM-Disk or something
- maybe one file to edit for IP-address, network card (?) and user name...
- or a configuration program to put all that on a floppy disk or CD... (kickstart?)

Has anybody done that before and helps me not to invent the wheel again?

I'm not a user with deep knowledge of Linux, I only want to let crunch more WUs!
Thanks in advance for all the help!

Try DemoLinux or ZIPSlack... I also heard of a distro like DemoLinux, that runs off a single CD without installing, but can't recall it's name... I think it should be listed in somewhere...
