Just checked the edubuntu site, and there isn't an edubuntu live cd. Is 
there a reason for this? I'd guess wo/manpower and time, rather than 
anything else, but I do think it's something of an omission.

The good news is that, with Ubuntu as a whole moving over to a joint 
live/install setup system, there should be a live option for edubuntu 

As for a lightweight edubuntu, there should be scope for working with 
Xubuntu (lighter version of Ubuntu, based on the XFCE desktop) to 
produce that.

Mark Shuttleworth's been close by. I'm sure he can arrange something - 
but you'll have to share it!
