The PLD project has released a specialist text-only mini live CD based on PLD Linux: "PLD Rescue CD is a bootable disk that contains a live Linux distribution based on PLD Linux (184.108.40.206 modular kernel). Furthermore, this version uses transparent compression (SquashFS) to fit about 180 MB of software onto a single mini CD 50 MB in usable form. PLD Rescue CD can be used to rescue ailing machines, perform intrusion post-mortems, act as a temporary secure Linux-based workstation (using SSH, VPN connecting to remote host - other networking clients are also supported), install PLD Linux, and perform many other tasks that we haven't yet imagined."
