   I've thought of something similar, although in my case it would be
a Debian installation CD with what's needed to install a working LSMB
system from scratch, or get LSMB installed on a working system.
Haven't had a chance to investigate it, though...

An idea that is being worked on is to provide a VM on a minimal Debian install.

Its not me but it is being worked on!

When its working I am quite sure that it will be released into the wilds! (grin!!)
