Networking, right up my ally, I don't think you would need to change
anything, just don't use NetworkManager. I'll have a look, off list, if
you like.

The livecd-fedora-minimal.ks is X-less. What base-on= does, is when the
new ext3 filesystem is created for the new cd, the old filesystem is
copied over before any rpms are installed. Then more or less does a "yum
upgrade" is done on the old setup, and the new iso is created. I'd try
the minimal.ks(might need a bit of fiddling) with the base-on= pointing
to your old livecd. 

Just a thought,

Jerry
