Given how easy it is with Linux, a LiveCD can't be all that hard,
but the time to *begin* an effort for CD has already passed.

Software needs to ship on a USB stick these days, maybe
with a 5$ ccd camera thrown in.

Better chance of raising funds for the project, also.
Newbies these days don't buy the books - they can't read.

Free, as in not for profit, *costs covered*, rather than free,
as in go hungry in order to contribute equipment as well as time,
would be a nice change to the model.

But no - it needn't be.  One floppy, then go over the wire...

(*flashback to the only thing *more* painful. Several hundred 
*successful* installs*
of Warp 3 / Warp Server Advanced*).  Most being balked or re-installs. 
You did
say OS/2?

But even eCS hasn't cured all of that ....
