Thanks Alexandre...

I used pclinuxos some years back, it was a good experience. However I 
never got to know it so well and since settled on Debian...

I have already a copy of the pclinuxos live-cd. It looks very nice but 
runs slow here from virtualbox. I would like to know more about the 
pclinuxos equivalent "live-boot" mechanism and how to boot the ISO from 
live usb (using syslinux) or HD partition

My approach to a live-image is a little different, I want to keep it 
=<700MB (not an easy task but now there is XZ compession) The intention 
is, it will be installable and expandable but also useful as a bootable 
live-image for system tasks, a "travelling OS" on usb or just 
demonstration. Requirements are minimal resource usage with a 
lightweight and user-friendly DE  (thanks TDE)

I support also the (Debian-based) Refracta project. It uses xfce, 
probably the best lightweight "mainstream" DE, however TDE remains my 
preference for overall GUI functionality. The ExeGNU installer and 
snapshot/remaster utility is "forked" from Refracta to suit TDE
