Bootable OS Flash Drive
I know the owner of a decent sized recycling center and I am going to get some PC towers/parts and since we have to remove the hard drives from them for privacy issues. I was wondering if anyone knew a simple OS that I could boot with a 8 GB flash drive on a computer? I have put a bootable BackTrack OS on a flash drive before, but I was wanting a simple OS that could tell me the specs of what is plugged into the comptuer[ex... Cpu, RAM, Graphics/Video Card]. Thanks in advance.
I can make a bootable version of the OS from the iso. If no one has any ideas I will just most likely use Back Track.

I'm fairly certain that Ubuntu would tell you the specs.

I would use something small and fast... Slitaz or Damn Small Linux are both good.
