Google for 'KDE Kiosk". There is at at least one project I used two
years ago to completely lock down a FreeBSD box using KDE and Firefox
(firebird at the time, I think)
You shouldn't have power-off issues if you never write data to the
drive, kind of tricky unless you make it a near-disktless system that
runs firefox off a network drive.

Don't know (and I'm to lazy to Google) if there is a FreeBSD live-CD
project, sure it has to be...

FreeSBIE 2 is nearing release.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
