Linux DTP Live CD

Please add to the list of applications that you would like to see included into this live CD. It will be based on Knoppix, so you can choose from what is available in Debian archives. See http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages where there are lists and search pages. Or you could write up your choices and I will see if they are available. I think that we should keep the CD as small as possible to be able to make those mini-CDs (200Mb or so) often.
