26" cyclocross tire for mtb ?

Can anyone suggest a good tire for cyclocross for my mtb with 26" wheels and clinchers ? I want it to be under 2" and lightweight and for hard pack surfaces, not mudd. Something fast and a good roller.

Go to your LBS and look for a 1.5" tire with a pretty small knobby texture..
Probably don't want the extra mass of heavier tread.
