They are bootable CDs containing a working debian-based distribution. They are 
handy for system repair, hardware diagnostics, etc. You can also install them 
to your hard drive in lieu of a 'normal' debian install, but be aware that 
the resulting installation isn't 'pure,' it will be somewhat different from a 
straight debian install. For instance, under Mepis, su:root is allowed to run 
X programs and the default runlevel is 5 rather than 2. 

They come pre-loaded with KDE, Open Office, etc.
