I saw this on Slashdot a few days ago.

It is a customised Knoppix distribution, with an OpenMosix patched
kernel, and PXE/DHCP enabled etc.
I intend to try this out in the next few days.

For those who haven't used Knoppix, it is a CD which contains a bootable
Debian-based distribution which installs itself in memory, not touching
the hard drive. Knoppix has excellent hardware detection, and sets up
a good desktop. It 'just works'.
Uses might include demonstrating a Linux desktop to friends/colleagues,
testing if a PC can run Linux before buying/accepting it, or as a rescue
disk for troubleshooting an already installed Linux system.
