if you want to add /sbin to root's path permanently, you need to add it to
root's .bashrc, not .bash_profile. that'll take care of it so /sbin is
there after a reboot.

you couldn't log in because the livecd-creator command doesn't set a root
password and doesn't create a normal user. you'll have to do that
yourself. i think i saw that in the docs somewhere.
hope that helps,
