Hi all!

   I customize the live in a simple way.
   I start the live in qemu:

      qemu -m 256 -cdrom debian-live/binary.iso -boot d -redir 

   I change everything I need (Add icons to desktop, change background, 
set preferences).
   I copy the /home/casper from the live to my host.
   Then, I include that directory with

       # Chroot includes               (Default: empty)

   In that directory I have a "./home/casper" directory structure.
   After that is necesary to set the correct owner to start KDE. I use 

       # User command                  (Default: empty)
       LIVE_HOOK="chown 999:999 /home/casper -R"

   The 999:999 is the number that take the user at runtime.

   That all and work fine.
