Need a CD-based distro of Linux, that is: one can stick a CD in a PC, have the PC boot from the CD and have Linux available, without using the local hard disk, or any remote service. (On booting, Linux installs the / file system in RAM; the /usr file system is mounted from CD.)
The motivation is that one can download images and install them on the local harddisk.
Thanks and Ack
