What should I use to replace KNOPPIX 5.1.1 as my Linux-based bootable repair CD?

I repair Windows machines often with KNOPPIX; it’s the easiest way for me to get a clean OS running so I can blow away viruses. However, KNOPPIX 5.1.1 shows its age, as it failed to work on a computer I recently went to service due to the computer being “too new.” KNOPPIX 5.2 is a DVD-only release and so is not particularly useful to me. I’m also looking for a USB-based self-contained Linux. The problem is that the number of choices are staggering: SLAX, DSL, MEPIS…it’s hard to pick one. I’d be primarily using it for command-prompt-based repairs on Windows machines, but I’d need X11 and a browser like Firefox available as well. Having ntfsprogs and ntfs-3g are crucial, and having the “dd_rescue” command would be a very good thing as well. Failing all this, having a guide to rolling my own would be a nice thing to have. I’ll be booting this on anything from a Pentium II to a brand new Core 2 Duo, so a RECENT kernel and drivers is fairly vital.

So, what “live” distros should I check out in my search? And please don’t say “Ubuntu.” It’s the worst Linux distro I’ve ever seen in my life, and horribly slow on top of all that.

My son is using Knoppix Live to access restricted computer.?

How do I stop my son from using the restricted computer? He uses Knoppix Live which boots up Linux through a cd. He then can access internet without any parental controls. How do I regain control of the family computer?

linux spontaneously rebooting?

I have a dell optiplex gx150 and tried to install xubuntu and knoppix from the live cds. Have an atheros wifi pci card. Problem is once either system is installed and I try to update or upgrade the system thru synaptic, or even in other cases, the system reboots spontaneously. I though linux was safe from hackers. Could this be a hacker or possibly some sort of hardware problem unique to this computer?
