I know about the error warnings, but I really didn't spend any time on
this iso. Just wanted to make sure it's bootable and the binaries are
usable on other systems. It would definitely be a good idea to keep
track of machines and configs somehow. I really need to get started on
some documentation. Hopefully this week.

For now, all my cd builds are being done manually. Will perhaps look
into scripting them as time goes on.

When I start building in earnest, I'd like to include all the stuff the
x86 cd has.
