FAQ
I am currently building a Live CD for CentOS 5. I am using the tools
from the livecd-tools project [1].

Here is my setup:
- A workstation with CentOS 5 i386
- dosfstools 2.11-8 [2]
- livecd-tools 009-3 [2]
- pykickstart 1.0-1 [2]
- syslinux 3.36-2 [2]

To create a live CD, you need a kickstart configuration file[3].

You also need to increase the maximum number of open files:
# ulimit -n 65535

Then, you can start the creation process (~30 minutes):
# livecd-creator --config=centos-livecd-desktop.ks

For more information regarding livecd-creator, you can read the Fedora
How-to:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD/LiveCDHowTo

I am still trying to find the optimal combination of software for the
live CD. Any help would be appreciated.
