I'll look into it too. If first boot is too big for a single install CD,
then firstboot has to go, because the Holy Grail of the single install
CD must be attained....
I'm speculating here because I'm not yet up on the live CD status, but
would a single install disk, while worthy in it's own right, be a
significant launching pad to a live CD?
