Would the author(s) of debian-cd care to provide an outline of the
major steps that debian-cd performs in constructing an image - it
would help others wanting to put together similar tools for such tasks
(I know, I know, documentation is evil .. but it can be useful ;)
I'm thinking of something that explains things to the level of making
a bootable image, copying in packages, creating a rescue disk image,
etc. (excuse me if this is gibberish, I'm not very familiar with the
process currently but would like an alternative to mounting existing
netinst images with a loopback device and inserting items into them).
