Perhaps this will help:

http://www.linux-live.org/

You can make a live cd out of any distro (Including LFS). If you really want to do it yourself just read the scripts and it will give you a good overview of the process and steps required to make a live cd.

Also, here is a LFS 'hint' for making a live cd:

thanks for the reply, bulliver...

i've used the linux-live.org system, but i really don't like it...

plus right now i'm not looking for somebody's "system" i'm looking for a "guide" so i can do this on my own... as with LFS and such...

also, i want to make a live cd ON my system, but i don't want to make that live cd OUT of my system... i'm not too fond of the whole "this will turn any linux installation into a live cd" thing... i just don't like that concept...

the truth is, i should probably do LFS before going for some kinda LFS LIVE thing...

meanwhile, well, i guess i'll try to do this live cd from scratch thing on my own... i'd like to make it a shell script that downloads the sources and/or binaries and "assembles" everything locally and generates the ISO image... to modify the live cd you modify the script before the build... like a regular slackware build-script, except this baby builds a complete live cd...

i might also just put this aside for a while, as it might be out of my league for all i know... i might just go for something simpler, like customizing the slackware rescue disk or something (cd 2)... i just need to add some tools to it and stuff, i really don't need X on it or anything like that... i'd LOVE to have a live cd that would also give me the choice of installing regular slackware...

anyways, thanks for the input...

if anybody else has any links, i'd really appreciate them... i've found a couple links on building your own live cd but none of them are too complete... there's also lots of those "customize knoppix" links, but honestly, if i can't do it from scratch, then i'll do it from slackware...

=)

if found this howto:

it's a very general overview, but enough to get me started i think...

i just found this howto on distrowatch.com and thought i'd share the link here... i haven't read through the whole thing yet, but it seems to be quite complete and packed with great information about making your own live cd "almost from scratch":

There is an LFS LiveCD being created - see the lfs-support mailing lists for details. There is an SVN for it so you could take the Makefiles and make your own - but it's in early stages frm what I understand...
