Yes, I'm currently working on a knoppix-based live CD for DeMuDi.
There is a (really) beta version here:
I will soon release an alpha version and a final one, which will be
distribuited at the Linux Audio Meeting 2004 .
This is a preliminary work and I hope to provide better things in the

I think that the bottom-up approach emerged a while ago in a
discussion on live CDs (I did not follow such threads, but they are
summarised in Andreas' document on CDDs) is the most suited.

I don't know whether Klaus is involved in this project or not, but I think his help would be very useful.
By chance the Linux Audio Meeting is held in Karlsruhe, where Klaus
lives. Maybe I could write him and propose a working session to
understand what should be included in these knoppix-* packages, how
should they work and what are the possible delicate issues we should
Awfully definitively I lack of Knoppix insights and understanding, so
all I have in mind is that we need a[some] knoppix package[s] which,
given a custom pool of packages, automatically builds the CD iso.
