indeed that is the question.  I have found some references to $CDBOOT
and that var is definately not being set.  I have just posted a baselayout
1.8.6.12-r4  that is KEYWORDed -*, so anyone testing needs to keyword it
for their arch, and add it as a dep to their livecd-stage1 spec file so
that it gets emerged into their base system.  The only change so far is to
define $CDBOOT if  'cdroot' is on the kernel command line.

This -r4 release will not be committed until we have a complete livecd
patchset.  And then, the patches will be cleaned up and committed properly
to  gentoo-src/rc-scripts  and rolled into an official -r4 release.

It's going to take quite a bit of testing, so anyone that has the ability
to should definately help out.  Use e-mail as a way to coordinate the efforts
please.

-Brad
