There are several possible ways to do this now; the easiest may be to
use the hooks in the latest debian-cd version in svn to add files to
the temporary disc trees at various points. I wouldn't recommend
trying to re-implement the netinst build yourself, tbh - it's quite
complex already..

We should get together and talk about live CDs some more, soon. :-)
