Hi all,

I am giving GRASS (and open source GIS) workshops every now and then. The 
next one is in a few weeks. The problem is, I have only windows machines 
available, and I have had bad experiences with badly installed CYGWIN and 
GRASS versions in the past. (I have to leave it to the sysadmins).

I have proposed to use linux liveCD's but I am not allowed to use them due 
to security reasons (access to the HD and network).

Theoretically it does not seem to be too difficult to disable those 
functions on a liveCD. Although I am an experienced linux user, I have no 
experience with liveCD's. So before I spend a lot of time trying, I would 
like the opinion of the mailing list.

- anyone with experience making linux live CD's including grass?

- if so, which distribution to start with (knoppix seems a logical choice 
and has a good customisation manual)

- any hidden snakes under the grass that anyone knows of?
