Hi Wouter,

At  http://livecd.ominiverdi.org/ you can found more info about our  
GIS Livecd Project.

The latest stable is the "Desktop Edition 2007.0"  with:

GRASS 6.2.1
QGIS 0.8
PostgreSQL 8.1.5
GDAL 1.3.2

There are also some sample data inside (as file and inside Postgis).

Currently we are working on the "Server Edition 2007.0" and on the  
"Desktop Edition 2007.1",
but we can't say when will be finished.

If need more info ( like a specific customization), let me know.
