Just like the title says, I followed this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=311158) thread, but I'd like to have a LiveCD with the latest kernel. Thanks.

123 pages spanning two years, yikes, my condolences to your eye-strain.

I tried remastersys, but the LiveCD drops to a intramfs shell at startup. And for some reason, I haven't had any luck with remastersys on Jaunty.

I did a fresh install, updated, rebooted, updated the kernel, opened Synaptic and removed all references to the old kernel, rebooted, ran sudo apt-get update-initramfs, then installed remastersys and made a dist copy.

The dist .iso is huge, 2.8 GB. Is that because the new kernel has a bunch of new stuff, or is that because the old one is still there?

I think I completely removed the old kernel, but I'm not sure. Is there an official procedure that I'm missing?

When the DVD boots it drops to a busybox shell. What does that mean?

Thanks for all the help.
