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,
