I found this cool distro a while back that boots from a CD. It is stripped down, locked down and comes packed with common tools used by hackers and security professionals alike. I've been meaning to take a look at it but I've lost the url.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about or anything similar? I'd really apriciate it because google hasnt been much help...

Could you be talking about Knoppix?

Nope, I was talking about Knoppix-STD.
I found what I was looking for... it seems there will be a new release shortly after new years.

Also have a look at PHLAK ....... http://www.phlak.org ....
From the site ....
"PHLAK is designed as the security professional's tool kit. It is not meant to turn the unexperienced into a security guru overnight. However, anyone with the desire can learn from the included tools and documentation.
Like any good tool, PHLAK can be used by Sith or Jedi alike. Included in the distribution are all the mainstream tools such as: nmap, nessus, snort, the coronor's toolkit, ethereal, and several other security packages. Some of the other lesser known, yet equally effective, tools include: hping2, proxychains, lczroex, ettercap, kismet, hunt, achilies, brutus, and many others. Make no mistake, this is a real Linux distribution including many common services such as apache, mysql, ssh, iptables, and most other services that are included on any other standard distribution."
Based on Morphix ...... anyway have a look.
