so why can't you do your own research? What wrong with using Google
to get a simple answer?
So for auditing, with live CDs...
Knoppix STD is not bad, except for the name... http://www.knoppix-
Whoppix was ok. It has been renamed to whax (http://www.iwhax.net/
if you want to look at forensics tools instead of auditing tools.

You just want super small?
Damn Small Linux: http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/
And of course if you don't know how to add and remove the tools you
want from these, maybe you should do more research.
Everyone has different needs. You don't state yours, so how can we
answer? I have used several of these, some were useful, others, not
so much... Will they work for you? who knows, since you don't say
specifically what you want. What is "pentest" exactly? What are you
testing? What kind of environment? Not that anyone here really
cares, but if you are going to ask a question, you might try and
research it first, then ask detailed questions.
