Live DVD Distrubtions

Are there any good Live DVD instead of LIVE CD distros of linux. I am looking for one with tons of programs intstalled that I can just run without installing to the hard drive sort of like Knoppix. I know Suse has one but it isnt free and I am looking for a free one. I think this will be pretty hard to find since I have tried and been unable to find anything so if you can find it you will get a good reward of 500 points.

There is Knoppix 3.4 Remastered DVD. It's unofficial and I have no idea what's in it. Anyway, here's a thread that mentions it:

There is also KNOPPIX 3.5 LinuxTag 2004 DVD Edition, but apparently it's not available for download. It was sold at Linux Tag expo and it included Knoppix and a bunch of conference material.

Do you think you can find anything else. I am looking for something that is in English and that will allow me to easily play games from it. Do you know of any way to remaster knoppix without having a linux partition?

Well, there's Quantian, but as far as I know, it's highly specialized for numerical analysis, http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/quantian.html. That, Suse and those couple of Knoppix remasters are the only I know.

If DVD format isn't strict requirement, you might want to have a look at a list of live cd distros aimed for gamers, http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php?sort=&showonly=gaming.

I don't know about the remastering of Knoppix. I guess you could do it in a Windows partition, but I'm not the one to tell you to try it. If you have good backups and adventurous mind, you could try.
