Just a quick question. i was reading a manual on proftpd and one suggestion it had was to run the server OS from a bootable live cd. does this actually improve security? why? wouldnt it be a standardized os that could be even more easily exploited? i thought id pass the question in front of you guys.

If you run from a live CD, every time you reboot it is equivalent to re-installing the OS.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
