Question Step-by-step procedure to make a Live CD?


I'm thinking of converting one of the Linux distribution
I have on one of my partitions into a Live CD and
boot it and work from the CD just like it was on my
hard drive. I know this is possible, I just need to be
pointed to those sophisticated tools and documentation
to get me started. Thanks much!

This is the guide I used to create my live CD. It's pretty straightforward.

Re: Live CD

This is a good start. Excellent information for starters. Thank you very much. The only problem is my partition is at least 2G (about 1.8 gigs). I have to figure out how to compress this partition and run it off compressed in a CD. Anybody got any ideas?

Also I tried Knoppix and Yoper and I am so awed at the technique they use to configure the hardware on bootup. The problem is I don't know where to start as far as getting documentation on how to do this and the tools needed to make this kinda stuff???

no offence but your probably better off just sticking with downloading Knoppix and other livd CD's as making one (imho) is not ever remotely worth it. it take a LOT of time and ask Acid_kewpie as I beleive he knows. it's a LOT of work man



p.s. if you still want to do so, good luck to you and post your progress here
