Yes, that also works now, thanks. Now my queries: 1. I need to rebuild my images a lot (debugging!). So, is there a way to tell live_helper to use the packages off the current system eg. not download the packages each time from ftp.au.debian.org. Otherwise I guess I could just copy all the debs into the packages directory, but that would be a little annoying. 2. My livecd isn't resolving domain names eg. www.google.com, but it is fine with the ip it seems... ifdown eth0 and ifup eth0 don't recognise eth0. Eg. they say the device is not found. ifconfig though shows eth0 has an ip address... 3. How can I install kernel modules into the kernel running on the livecd with live_helper? I need to get the packages out of unstable, but I'm running lenny; is this possible. Otherwise how do I install the modules from a deb? 4. How can I start gnome applications at start up on the livecd? 5. Is there anyway I can make the live cd remember the users modification to a couple of files? Or will I have to enter the settings manually each time I boot the livecd? 6. Is it possible to launch the installer off the livecd? If so how? Thanks very much for your help! Daniel.
