The livecd-creator command works with the same yum software repositories and kickstart files that are used with other Fedora installation and build tools. So, to create a live CD, you just have to create a kickstart file and point it at a Fedora repository. In addition to containing the livecd-creator command, the livecd-tools package offers several preconfigured kickstart files to help you get started. The ISO images resulting from livecd-creator can be burned to CD, DVD, or USB flash drives.
