To be sure, a key tool used is called casper - which was
developed by Canonical and used to create Ubuntu Live CDs.

On my Debian box I can now `apt-get install live-package`
which takes care of getting casper and other tools, and
`make-live` and end up with a bootable Debian Live CD image.

I find qemu to be useful in running Live CD images,
no need to burn media and look for another computer to use.


That was in the back of my mind... thanks for
providing the URL.
