I've recently been playing around with Ubuntu with the aim of developing user-customizable live CD/DVDs/USB disks.

It works as follows:

1. User downloads(or builds) and burns  a liveDisk .iso image.
2. User boots it up. Adds software. Creates encrypted wallets. Makes it pretty.
3. User 'reproduces' the system as a new .iso and writes it to CD/DVD or USB disk

I currently have a very basic bitcoin livedisk version which can be downloaded (768mb) here

It contains:

Screen shots:

I also have a GUI-less, Bitcoin-tool-less, bootstrap.iso at 387mb, here:

Of course, everything can also be built manually. The build process is as follows:

Building the bootstrap.iso

1. Install Vagrant

git clone git:// .
cd build_amd64            # or build_i386
vagrant up

Building the liveDisk-bitcoin distro

1. Find a decent sized USB flash disk (8gb would do nicely). **This will be completely wiped!**

2. Boot the 'bootstrap.iso`. Select 3rd boot option (with flash storage)

3. `sudo livedisk-init-flash /dev/sdX`  (where /dev/sdX is replaced by the path to your USB device)

4. `sudo livedisk-install bitcoin` (and wait a while!)

5. Reboot and again select 3rd boot option

6. Customize your distro!

Save your modified distro to a new .iso

1. `sudo livedisk-reproduce flash`  to make your customized liveDisk .iso
