And /newroot?  Lets clarify:

1) /mnt/livecd will be your zisofs image/whater
2) /mnt/cdrom will be the cdrom itself ?

So basically, the looback stuff just need to worry about /mnt/livecd,
and both for the non-critical unmount stuff?

Also, is /newroot now totally not used anymore?  And why does /mnt/cdrom
need to be mounted - i thought / was in there?  I guess a quick
explanation on all the types used (zisofs, etc) and what they mount for
what will be great ...

Hmm, not sure - that is why I asked for comments from others.  I guess
the truth will still hold - the conf files tested for should not be
there if the user did not setup it ...
