Submission + - DIY Linux Live CD -- the Really Easy Way!

DeviceGuru writes: A new release candidate of Custom NimbleX 2 became available this week. This lesser known Slackware-derived project offers a Web-based tool that lets users concoct, and then download, their own customized live CD Linux images — in minutes! NimbleX is a small-footprint distribution based on Slackware Linux, with the addition of "linux-live" scripts. It can boot from business-card CDs, USB thumb drives, MP3 players, or from over a network, and it appears to run entirely from RAM. One especially interesting feature of the NimbleX live CD is that it allows access to the hard drive on the system on which it boots — making it a useful system troubleshooting tool, but also potentially dangerous.
