Sure.  My current plan is to make a knoppix CD.

My original question still stands, though.  Does anyone have experience 
in setting up a dial-in server system under linux?  (mingetty, pppd, 
etc)? That's my real question.  Better yet does a boot cd or floppy 
already exist to do this?  I'd think so since this can't be all that 
unusual (at least 10 years ago anyway.. ;).
