Right, I'm studying it now.

Things I'll need to look into:

 - a way NOT to have the live image and to only have the installer, in
   case we run short of space in the installation media;
 - a way to automatically start the installer and not the live image,
   since the installation happens on a machine with no input devices
   besides the power switch, and has to run completely unattended from
   boot to "All done: You can remove installation media and power cycle"
   message at the end.

Let's see what I find.
