distributing lfs distro?

what, if any, would be the most efficient way to take my lfs system and package it for, say, cd install somewhere else? i understand i'd have to write some sort of install script, but how can i take everything and distribute it?

To make an install CD.

1.You need to make a Kernel for booting from a cdrom and storing files into the RAM.
2.(optionally) Then make the install scripts. I would recommend using the nALFS program from ALFS.
3.Then, make a bootable ISO file.
