*dead simple* for any reasonably experienced Linux admin to create their 
own custom distribution.  Ideal for ISVs who want to build an appliance 
around their own product.  Build an RPM, identify the minimal number of 
packages needed to make an appliance around that RPM, and then build a 
distro and a live image.  Easy as pie.
