[mythtv-users] Bootable mythfrontend?

Does anyone know of a distro that boots off a CD and runs mythfrontend?
I have a few windows boxes around the house that the family refuses to
change to a decent OS, and WinMYTH seems to be a dog.

But if I could boot off a CD and run the frontend entirely off the CD,
it would be ultra cool. Something along the lines of knoppix, although
it could be a lot smaller of course.

If no such thing is presently available, would others be in favour of
doing this? gentoo is great for making bootable CD's, and there are also
many howtos about the show on re-mastering knoppix.

Can anyone think of any pitfalls? One is that some info (backend
address, database password etc) would need to be stored somewhere other
than on the CD.
