Howto Create Custom Fedora Linux Live CDs

You can create your very own custom Live CD from your very own custom configuration with this step-by-step guide.

In December 2006, the Fedora Linux distribution released its first official Live CD, which, thanks to an intelligent selection of applications, nicely advertises the best features of Fedora. In addition to many applications, the Live CD has several games, uses the Compiz 3D desktop, and is accessible by non-English speaking users. But what stole the show for me was David Zeuthen's livecd tools, which make creating and maintaining a custom Fedora-based Live CD a walk in the park.

Though Fedora Linux is a popular and mature Linux distribution, and many people have created Live CD distributions based on Fedora, the Fedora project itself didn't released its first official Live CD until December 2006. Learn how to build your own custom and easy-to-use Live CDs using a rewrite of Pilgrim, the Fedora Live CD creation tool.
