Thanks very much for your reply Tim.

I thought I could add /sbin to root's path permanently by editing root's
.bash_profile file, but, although the file took the change, that didn't
lead to /sbin showing up in root's path on a reboot. So I added /sbin to
root's path temporarily before running the livecd-creator again.

if you want to add /sbin to root's path permanently, you need to add it to root's .bashrc, not .bash_profile.  that'll take care of it  so /sbin is there after a reboot.

When I booted from it, all worked up to the stage where I was asked to
log in. I knew nothing of any username or password, so I just pressed
Enter. However, that didn't work.

you couldn't log in because the livecd-creator command doesn't set a root password and doesn't create a normal user.  you'll have to do that yourself.  i think i saw that in the docs somewhere.

hope that helps,
