Yep, but the old livecd script is extremely hackish, and I believe it
even copied it's own  rc  script out of an aux-files directory.  We
cannot do that with this version.  Baselayout must be modded to be
functional.
It also required a mingetty compiled and put in aux-files which we don't
want to do either.

I really hesitate to tell people to look at it because we do not want to
fall into the very things were are wanting to avoid.  None of this is
really complex, it's just difficult since it's on CD's, and having to
create ISOs and burn cds is really really time consuming, and every little
typo will kill you.

Anyhow, still looking for people ....
