    live network cl cd


    im looking for a live cd that will boot fast to a command prompt and will have windows client networking.

    A client that i can change the comp name on boot, and is command line.

    we are using dos, but with dif machines need differt net drivers and differnt comp names.

    i imagine there is a live that can be configured that way, but too many out there. please help me narrow it down.

    Not sure I understand the situation/question, but take a look at DSL (Damn Small Linux). It's a wonderful little live-cd.

    Slackware version 8.1 available from LinuxCD.org ($3US+shipping) is all that. No GUI as on DSL so it loads much faster. It's an install CD but it boots to a command line. To set up networking, I think the command is 'netsetup'. Maybe more recent Slackware versions do the same, but I only know 8.1. While DSL takes longer to load, it will configure your NICs, etc automatically. But it can hang on odd hardware.

    You could also give SLAX Frodo Edition a go.

    SLAX Frodo edition is the console base for all other SLAX releases. It doesn't contain almost anything, only full working Linux command prompt and drivers.
    Read about version 5.0.6: http://slax.linux-live.org/download.php

    BTW: All the versions of Slax I've tried in the past have been really good.
