There isn't a live CD for demonstrating the booting of thin clients. 
There is, however, a live CD that contains/shows the applications that 
come with K12LTSP, which is probably more useful as a give-away at a 
conference anyway.  The CD is an Edubuntu disk that I doctored so that 
it looks like K12LTSP 6, which I then handout to teachers so they can 
explore K12LTSP at their convenience.  The irony is that the true 
brilliance of LTSP--that old machines can be given new life as snappy 
thin clients--isn't what most people care about.

The live CD, aka "K12LTSP's Greatest Hits", is available at
