Greetings

I would suggest trying mpentoo.I is easy to maintain and easy to customise.
I run around with one minidisc in my wallet.Additionnal modules and
the such can go to the USB .So actually withou resorting to modules
you can install programs into you're USB and have them ready on start
up.If you need help with it let me know.

For Gentoo in general there is also

LFS is maybe the best on the long run but it is rather hard to work
with specially if you have some time constraint and little knowledge
of linux systems in general(but it is a great learning instrument
too).

I would not go with debian in general for live CD but that is a bias
personnal opinion.

Hey Guys,

I'm looking to create my own pentesting distro.. I really like BackTrack and Auditor but would like to fill in the 
gaps adding some tools for VoIP and App Testing..

I have played with about every distro so far-
Knoppix
Kanotix
Whax
LInux Fire
WAR Linux
Slax - Kill Bill
Slax - Frodo
Ubuntu
Linspire

So far I'm would really like to stick with debian based distros for my distro.

Would it be best to start with something like Kanotix and remaster it?? Or just start from scrath with debain and 
compile cloop and unionFS?

The only thing is that I see that Slax uses modules and has an easy to use remastering system.

I'm looking for Pros/ Cons of starting from scratch vs. just modifying another distro.

I have used linux for a couple years and can get around pretty well but no expert.

Cheers

Hank
