Not that I'm interested in performing such a task, but I think a
suitable "small size" live cd would include the basic gnome gui (not
sure what it's called in squeeze), network manager, synaptic, software
center, and not much else. This would provide users with a (hopefully)
familiar gui, and the opportunity to easily install additional software.
Of course if the goal is to have a demo cd, then you'd want to carefully
pick additional software to include. But I think a lot of people would
be happy with what I described above.
