I think chubby puppy might be what you are looking for.
It requires 256MB ram though but honestly i don't think openoffice would run on anything with less that on a live cd.

Hi Chaudhuri !

Thanks for your reply. I did try and its working fine. It comes with OpenOffice.org 1.1. Do you have any idea of upgrading the version ? or else Installing the OpenOffice.org 2.2 ? I tried but failed.. Are you able to help me out on this ?

Anyone any idea..

Thanks,

Ganesh

I don't know how you tried to upgrade
But maybe you might want to customize the cd itself.
Puppy has something called puppy unleashed that you can use to customize the distribution, but its a seperate download and will need to rebuild iso image after modification.

They have got detailed info about it.

Thanks Chaudhuri !

Is there any way that we can use OpenOffice.org 2.* ? or is there any version of puppy that comes with OpenOffice.org 2.* ?

Need your advice..

I have never tried to install nor have any knowledge about installing newer version of openoffice on puppy.

Buit I did customize puppy using puppy unleashed few years back to include some more software and it worked nicely.

The customization is fairly easy and mostly requires just some patience, reading and downloading
