I think John is on the money there. I visited the Beatrix site and it
is YAKBLLCD (Yet Another Knoppix Based Linux Live CD). It use Gnome

One of the icons is for Open Office. Running OO with 64M of RAM is, to
say the very least of it, not going to be a thrilling experience. And
as a live CD? Good luck.
