I need to check out RIP, since i haven't used it before. I have tried the others and became a huge fan of SystemRescue CD. It includes a large amount of software, and it's easy to customize by adding or removing software. I keep a version with the development tools and all graphical applications removed on my susb stick. That customization significantly reduced the size of the system, and installing it to a usb stick was straightforward. There are a great set of boot options; I find the one for autorunning a script when it boots to be very handy. There's great documentation on most aspects of the system. Development is steady, and the developers listen to feedback on the forums.
