[http://www.sidux.com/ sidux] Debian Sid (unstable) based Live CD

This page discusses the possible ways to build a ["LiveCD"] for DebianScience.

Scientific Live CDs that already exist (pionneering works)

CD or DVD ?

Should we put all the scientific tools on one single CD? If yes, then [http://lists.debian.org/debian-science/2005/07/msg00003.html a DVD should be more sensible].

Otherwise, if we want to stick to CD, maybe several thematic CD sets could be build.

Available tools that could be used for building live CD
