If there's someone familiar with building an ISO from a current system or
remastering an existing one, would it be possible to run a test case? That
way we can both see if it works and answer the million dollar question? I
don't have an install of Gentoo locally or I'd make the attempt.

 The developers have asked me to sho how big the software is, and I have
done that.  Basically, if you don't include alsa support, it is  somewhere
around 3 mb or so.  We will need alsa support as well for the  software
speech, but I do not know how much space that will take up.

My goal is to get the software on all of our media and not just the live cd.
