Welcome to the CentOS LiveCD Project


How to create a CentOS LiveCD

We are using the tools from the livecd-tools project to create a CentOS LiveCD image. While this toolset is not yet officially included in CentOS 5, this project attracted a strong community of developers.

The LiveCD creation process is done via a python script using a kickstart configuration file. The resulting LiveCD image is a bootable compressed filesystem.

Note: the process described below applies to CentOS 5.
