I posted a note about using Livecd Linux a while ago. Since then I
have listened to Leo Laporte KFI tech guy podcast where he suggested
using a Livecd Linux to a caller who wanted to use windows but not for
the internet. You can hear the show and see the details at
http://leoville.tv/radio/pmwiki.php/ShowNotes/Show162 which contains a
link to http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php which contains a
rather comprehensive list of livecds mostly labelled by their size and
purposes, e.g. Desktop, OS Replacement, Diagnostics, Rescue, Gaming
and as an amateur lisp programmer my favorite live cd the lisp
resource net cd, which while knoppix based boots into a lisp education
and development environment.

Thank you for sharing these.
As you can see from the list of the second URL, some of these live
CDs are discipline/subject specific. As a part of Project Ockham, I
believe we intend to put on to a live CD our digital library registry
(directory) as well as things like Fedora and possibly MyLibrary in
an effort to make it easier for people to see how these things work.
I still want to put my Alex Catalogue of Electronic Texts on a live
CD, but my copious spare time is running thin.
