Well I'm new at this and had the same/similar problem.

I copied all of the contents of the Fedora-Livecd I downloaded and
burned to a cd to the
/usr/tmp/livecd-creator' directory

Before building the image you need to..
First get Super User
'su -'
then set SELinux
'/usr/sbin/setenforce 0'

also insure you are in the directory where you want the ISO file to be

I'm still working at figuring out the commands and configuration but the
above way did get me started with a boot-able ISO img.

Some body else will probably give you better incite but I hope this may
