Set of scripts for creating a live CD

Linux Live is a set of bash scripts which allows users to create their own live CD from any distribution. It boots by using initrd, then mounts the whole packed filesystem from the CD. Next, it inserts ovlfs modules into kernel to emulate "pseudo-writing" to the CD and links all directories together in /mnt (tmpfs). Last, /mnt is chrooted and ramdisk is freed.
