Using PCLOS as your distro, it is easy to set up a custom install, then 
run mklivecd to turn your install into a LiveCD. So if your system does 
not enable network access (you'll still need your loopback device) nor 
enables HDD access, your LiveCD won't either.

This article describes how to do this with QGIS, but installing GRASS 
instead/as well  will work just as well.


PCLOS is focussed very much on ease of use, & I have found non-Linux 
users to be more comfortable with it than Knoppix LiveCD's. Very much a 
matter of opinion though :-)
