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.
