    Very small live cd with mount and copy functions


    Hello,

    I searched in some distro choosers, and on this site, but I wasn't able to find one which is able to do the things I want from it. For the first: I don't need a graphical interface. Commandline is quite enough, and it should start very fast. Hmm let me sum that up

    -Live-CD
    -Very-Fast-Start
    -No graphical interface ( i hope this is the right name for that... in german its called
    Graphische Oberfläche )
    -mount
    -copy
    -maybe bootable from usb-stick

    I'm really keen on your ideas Thx for help

    Greetings Didi

    Have you looked at SLAX? Also, have you considered making your own? I used the Linux Live scripts and made a slackware live cd tailored to my needs. It was pretty easy.

    You can roll your own distro with a number of tools.

    Couple options:
    Building a Live CD - ArchWiki
    UCK - Ubuntu Customization Kit

    For very lightweight distros (which do have an optional GUI but not necessary)
    Tiny Core Linux, Micro Core Linux, 10MB Linux GUI Desktop, Live, Frugal, Extendable
    SliTaz GNU/Linux (en)

    Slightly less light:
    SystemRescueCd
    grml.org - Linux Live system/CD for sysadmins and texttools-users

    Well, I was going to suggest Tiny Core but see that someone beat me to it!
