which distro/ liveCD?

I have decided that I don't want to download 777 disks of a distro when most of the times one liveCD is just OK and I can use it to install and than download the rest.

OK, but which liveCD is the best for me?

I have 2 requests:
1- it MUST contain the pptp module since my ADSL modem is of this type
2- it have to be built for complete idiots :-) as simple and easy as possible
