+== Building your own iso ==
+
+=== Getting started ===
+
+Before trying to get started building this, be advised that I have only tested on Arch Linux so far. It should work on any distro with a little of manual work involved.
+
+=== Getting dependencies ===
+
+You need the following for now:
+* Up-to-date Arch Linux system
+* archiso-git installed from AUR
+* squashfs-tools
+* aufs2-util
+* grub
+* syslinux
+* cdrtools from AUR (cdrkit mostly works too)
+* devtools from [extra]
+
+=== Building ===
+
+Run
+ sudo ./buildscript all
+to build all available images.
+If that works, go hug somebody! If it doesn't, oh well :(.
+
+=== Writing to medium ===
+
+The generated iso image will work for CD, DVD and USB key just fine. For CD or DVD, use your favorite burning software. For USB key, use dd. Recommended command for dd: dd if=path-to-image.iso of=/dev/your-usb-device bs=8M. Obligatory warning: dd can wreck the contents of a harddisk, use with care and doublecheck the device you are writing to.
+
+THE FOLLOWING IS NOT TRUE
+=== Persistent home ===
+
+To make the home on your USB key persistent, simply create a second partition of type VFAT (format 32 recommended) on the USB key after dd'ing the iso image onto it. Its label has to be LGLIVE_HOME or it won't work. This is all you have to do for the persistent home.

+What is the LAN-Host boot option?
+LAN-Hosting is a highly experimental yet very cool feature that allows other
+people in your network to boot completely diskless, provided your network
+connection is stable. Effectively, you will only need one instance of lglive
+on your whole network which everybody can boot from. How cool is that?
+This is the ultimate emergency LAN-Party feature ;).
+
+How does it work?
+The process goes as follows:
+1) You boot your live system using the LAN-Host option.
+2) Once the lglive desktop shows, you tell people to boot their computers
+ but press their boot selection keys just before the BIOS screen goes past.
+ Usually, the key is F8 or F12. Once your are in the boot selection screen,
+ choose something along the lines of "Network Boot". Every modern BIOS
+ supports this. If you can't find this option, look around the BIOS settings
+ themselves and see if there's an option to "Enable LAN Boot ROM" or
+ anything like that.
+3) You let the diskless clients boot up like this one by one.
+4) ???
+5) PROFIT!
+
+Possible pitfalls:
+- It might fail if a DHCP server is already running on the network.
+- You need a fast network and a quick host computer.
+- Probably not working for wireless clients.
+
+If something goes wrong, tell me.
