[Fedora-livecd-list] Problem creating livecd from a custom config



hi! i'm trying to build a custom livecd from a config file using the instructions here http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-fedora-livecd/index.html

so i've followed the format of the config file and then created my rpm...these steps appear to complete without any problems.

the problem i'm having is when i run the livecd-creator command.  here's the command i'm using:

' livecd-creator --repo=livecd,file:///usr/local/fc6/repo --package=mylivecd-0.1-3.i386.rpm --fslabel=LiveCD-1.2'

and here's the output/error i'm getting:

/bin/cp: cannot create regular file `/var/tmp/livecd-creator/build-tmp-d5CrT/install_root/sbin/mayflower': No such file or directory

/usr/bin/mkisofs: Uh oh, I cant find the boot image 'boot/grub/stage2_eltorito' !

it seems like the issue may be with the environment and the mayflower executable not being in $PATH, but i added this line

    'export PATH=/sbin:$PATH'

to my config file and rebuilt my rpm.  i've also made sure that i have /sbin in root's path prior to running the livecd-creator command. 

really all i'm wanting to do is to set up the root user with a password and according to the docs this is the only way i've found.  is there any simpler way to do it?  or does anyone know what might be causing the error above?  any help is appreciated.

thanks,
tim
