About SLAX - Live CD
SLAX is a small distro which fits on a small (3.14") CD-ROM disc. It
runs directly from the CD (or USB) without installing to the hard disk.
It is based on
Linux distribution and uses the Unification File System,
allowing read-only filesystem to behave as a writable one, saving all
changes to memory.
Slax has support for 28 different languages.
