linux distros live cd

the Ubuntu live cd used to have a memory tester, but I have Ubuntu version 11.10 and it only has two choices - install and try -
instead of downloading and burning a bunch of different distros in the hopes of finding a memory tester, I thought I would ask the community
which distros live cds have a memory tester?

You want the Memtest86 CD.  It is DOS based I think and does one thing well - tests memory.

I also liek to use live Linux CDs.  Parted Magic is my favorite (which may have a memory tester) - but I always reach for memtest when it's needed.

As mentioned above, PartedMagic has memtest86+ included. But really almost every LiveCD includes it.

Ubuntu still comes with memtest, you need to press and hold any key to boot to the option menu. One of the option is memtest.
