Agreed. However, the benefit of grml is that the fonts are much better,
and it opens all the tty's and logs either root or user grml into them.
It also places the syslog on 12, so you can watch it live. Not to
mention it boots much faster.
There _is_ a live Debian CD, if someone wants the real thing, they can
get it at http://live.debian.net/
I have never tried it, so I can't make a comment on it.
