What Distros are meant to be used as a live CD instead of installed. So far I have found:

System Rescue CD
AmaroK Live CD
live.linuXgamers.net

Any others?

Knoppix but it can also be installed.
Gnoppix (http://www.gnoppix.org/)
It's the same as Knoppix but with Gnome.

Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, Sabayon, Gentoo, and PCLinuxOS are the ones I remember to have this function of LiveCD, but they can also be installed though.

Well ...all live CD's are designed for "live" use. It's just that many also give you the option of a full installation. You can continually use Ubuntu's Live CD and never actually install it for instance if you wished.

It's worth noting that most major distros include a live version ...Ubuntu, Fedora, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS.

If however, you mean a Live CD that cannot be installed, then that's another question ...

:cool:

Not for installation is what I mean.I'm building a collection of useful and unique live CDs and wanted to know what others there were. Stuff that serves a purpose but is not intended for installation (like the live.linUXgamers.net just has a bunch of games and fluxbox thats it).

Both:

Oz Live (GNOME) (http://cafelinux.org/OzEnterprise/?q=node/2)

Oz Live (KDE) (http://cafelinux.org/OzEnterprise/node/4)

are not intended for installation but they are Live DVD's NOT CD's.

Live DVDs are even better! All I have are DVDs so burning 80 MBs to one sorta feels like a waste but I accept it.
Downloading the KDE one right now BTW.

Very cool, you should compile a list of Live DVD distros. ;)

Wow, Kill bill Slax seems useful with wine, qemu, and dosbox preinstalled. Slax seems great! Speed and KDE!

don't forget the top Live CD/DVD

Knoppix (my number 1 favorite is an 8 GB Knoppix DVD)

Yes, Slax is quite neat, with all its flavours. I haven't used it extensively but it's a pleasant experience, and very quick.

Oh, and I've just discovered this (http://www.slax.org/webconfig.php)! Check that out! I think I might dig Slax a bit more.
