Live debian CD

Does anyone know if anyone has tried making a "live" cd from debian ?

By live i mean a cd that can boot and run a debian distribution.

My thoughts are that you could probably do it with a script file (probably
have to be a pretty fancy script i guess) but it should be possible to make
a live cd based on a current debian installation, or customised to contain
specific packages.

Such a cd would be handy for people wanting to try debian without dedication
hdd space, would also be good for a backup system.

For areas of the filesystem that need to be written to it should be possible
to use a ramdisk and backup the contents to a removable media, or somewhere
via a network.

An overlay filesystem (that ive read about somewhere) could also be used to
enable read only  filesystem to be overwritten

What do you all think ?

btw im new in here.. i hope this is the right place to discuss such ideas
