In particular, you want this hint:

Be aware that generating the LiveCD is not a simple task. If you don't
have a strong understanding of the LFS book already (and some external
projects), it will probably be very difficult. If you really want to
create a LiveCD in the method that the LFS CD is generated, I would
suggest checking out the LiveCD svn repository. There is some
documentation that complements the hint above. In fact, it has a more
recent copy of the remastering HOWTO in
doc/lfscd-remastering-howto.txt. Instructions for checking out or
viewing the svn sources are at the bottom of this page:
