    I'm looking for a LiveCD Linux distro that already has Truecrypt 4.2 already in the default distribution. The latest Truecrypt (4.2) can create new volumes and not just read them as in older Linux versions. Is anybody familiar enough with the kazillion distros to know if Truecrypt is already in one of them?

    THANKS!

    I've checked in synaptic but it's not in there, i use Ubuntu 5.10.
    You could just download it from here;

    you can install it on the Ubuntu Dapper livecd and save the install on any other media the livecd can see.

    you could also ask at the Damn Small Linux forum/irc, i think they have some kind of plugins for the cd. the .iso would be much smaller and quicker to burn.

    The thing is, I am just don't know enough about Linux to actually compile my own LiveCds with extra programs, that's why I was looking for a distro that includes it in the default. I guess I better start learning!
