I'm not sure how much I could contribute, but I'll certainly be an avid 

I like the idea... I spent the best part of a year getting my modified Chris 
Linguard's CD to work with isolinux and devfs and found the searchable docs 
on boot CDs to be difficult to understand (I'm not a software engineer) and 
inconsistent when using bleeding edge (e.g. DevFS).

I'll watch and learn - just like I did with LFS.

Thanks and have a great Christmas
