Create a debathena LiveCD / installation CD

Description

I think the best approach is to make a script that creates a Debathena installer LiveCD, so that we can completely automate upgrading to new distributions. We may need to be careful with memory usage.

These may be good things to look at for making this easy.

I've been thinking about creating a Debathena Live CD based on Hardy (I tried once before with the old debian-athena stuff, but never got it working quite right). If no one else is working on this, I'll give it a try.

Nelhage and I got an ISO that basically works done today at the hackathon. It can be downloaded from my public (/mit/xavid/Public/debathena.iso). It's generated by a script run on a normal Hardy Heron iso. The source for the script is in a git in my public: /mit/xavid/Public/git/debathify.git/. Testing/feedback/suggestions welcome.

Source is now canonically in /mit/debathena/git/debathena-live.git/.

I think this is now essentially working. But we should update the debathena website to advertise the live CD/installer setup.

Any chance of getting that link added?

The current CD iso (which is based on Hardy) is in my Public:  http://web.mit.edu/xavid/Public/debathena-8.04.1-live-beta3.iso. I don't have bits on the website.
