Yes, yes, that's the one. So if I understand this right, 
it's not a live cd per se, but rather tools to create your own
live cd? That's nice! Does it mean I can put on a disk the exact 
setup I have on my PC and take it with me anywhere, and feel at 
home? I wonder if I could run a live cd at kinkos.

They gotta change the name though, I'll never remember it.
