    I am a LiveCD enthusiast who has been using kanotix, knoppix (since
    its 3.8 version ;-)) and FreesBIE and I have been minding for some
    time about using liveCD's as full blown servers
    There is little and spotty information on this. yeah! you could
    certainly run apache right off your knoppix distro, but is this the
    way you would actually run your server?
    Very little is mentioned, if at all, about OS hardening and
    protection such as what you could achieve with open source grsecurity,
    SELinux, PAX, ...
    You find basically nothing here:
    and in his latest (very superficial book)
    "Live Linux(R) CDs: Building and Customizing Bootables", Christopher
    Negus doesn't say anything about it
    Having something like a base-line sever liveCD that would let you
    easily customize/remaster the rest to your liking would be superb!
    Probably there is something I am missing here, but I think running
    your OS and the application stack from a live CD would be great, among
    others, for security, manageability and versioning
    Any ideas, good links your know of?
