To make Live CD what format is correct for pkgs and kernel?

The pkgs are available in /var/cache/pacman/pkg as .pkg.tar.gz.

Is this format correct for a LIVE CD construction? And the kernel?

The arch 0.5 CD has .bz2 format, perhaps that is the correct one?

Re: To make Live CD what format is correct for pkgs and kernel?

Googling on the subject of LIVE CD reveals that the kernel may have to be modified to load as a ...ramdisk root/boot...

Other references include an initrd method for the kernel.

Are there changes to the kernel required to make a LIVECD possible?

None of the googling seems to apply to kernel 2.6.5...

Some claim to have made a LIVEDVD copy of LIVECD media which can be done with the .iso in k3b, perhaps!

Best way to promote arch?  A LIVECD, perhaps!
