Thanks for your reply.I have build a livecd using
livecd-fedora-8-base-desktop.ks file. There were more than 500 packages

packages I need to remove or save and which services were not necessary.
I just want to open a firefox browser when the system was booted. No login

Who can give me some suggestion?Any help will be appreciative.

The kickstart file itself is very similar to the one used for automated
installs of RedHat. If you do a google search, you should be able to find
RedHat's kickstart documentation (hint, make site:redhat.com

I was assigned a linux livecd task,but I am not familiar with linux. I
have finished a simple fedora livecd following the basic information I got
from here. Now,I have to build a minimal livecd with firefox, I think I want
to write ks file by myself base on kde ks file and add a firefox package.
But this iso file is very large for me. How can I do?
Thanks for your time? Where can I find the details of package which I
have to install and remove when I build a minimal firefox livecd.
