   yes.. variations on a theme are valuable exercises. You seem to have 
your developers cap on.. soooo

    1. Why not a USB based system, save those CD's for coasters.

    2. Incorporate the Puppy-Linux cdrom (yes.. cdrom) write-back 
capabilities to create a user customizable CDROM.

    3. Absolute minimum compile environment (CLFS bootstrap method) with 
network tools for a pure network build.

    Just some idea that have been floating around
