Hullo all.

I have a question, somewhat related to Brian's suggestion: anyone know of
a distro that provides LiveCD (see K/Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, etc) with
TeX/LaTeX built-in?

If not, anybody interested in producing one? I was trying to get ibuild to
work over the weekend, unsuccessfully at the moment (well, I gave it a
full 30 minutes) ... we could call it OSCix :)

I wonder if it's as simple as ibuild's faq says it is ... also, seems to
be just a debian variant
