Booth originally started as a collection of scripts to facilitate the creation of Firefox kiosks.
At the current time I have decided to focus my efforts on the livecd that incorporates these scripts.
I would recommend anyone interested in setting up a kiosk to try the livecd before looking at the scripts on the sourceforge webiste.
I have ported the scripts over to Damn Small Linux. The new iso image is 75 MB in size.
Note that this does not currently contain java support.
Here are some key features of "Boothbox LiveCD":
Set homepage and throbber url
Create a whitelist of allowed hosts
Custom locked down Firefox UI for kiosks
Fullscreen kiosk mode
Printing support via CUPS
Collect usage statistics and have them emailed to you
Firewalled to only allow web traffic
Locked down guest account for public usage
Automatic screensaver activation and kiosk reset
Firefox respawns after being killed
