Yea a bootable cd would be good. Find out if David has his install
script put together, so you could use that also.

I figure the cd would need

package tarballs
profiles wanted
alfs enviroment. (this I am still not sure what all is/is not needed)

I think you could make the enviroment like you would your LFS,
and then just burn that who directory, make the cd boot off that
enviroment? If you can get that install script, then boot off of that?

Have fun.
