How do I package My LFS system onto a disc for installation?


I've looked everywhere and I have yet to see a guide on how to put an LFS system onto a disc or into an ISO (Like Ubuntu and other popular distro's) so that someone can download it, burn it onto a disc, and then install it and use it like a normal distro. Like how I can download a Ubuntu image, put it in my computer, let it install, and then use it. Could anyone point me to a good guide or tell me how? All help is appreciated.

Maybe you could try running the linux live scripts and turn it into a live cd. It would not yield an installable system, but it'd be bootable anywhere, its a step forward I think.

Note: I think you must install GDM to work with casper tool.

back a while ago when i built a lfs 6.1 system I created a rough draft of how to install it onto another system without having to recompile everything. It was really more a collection of notes during a transfer but it did work. I dunno if it would still work for the newer builds. I am reluctant to mail it to anyone anymore as it may cause more issues then it would fix. But if you are interested in trying ive done it more or less and can give you answers to some questions.
