    OTOH, am I missing something? I did take my very workable basic image
    and clone it to a partition so as to make the changes I wanted. It
    wouldn't boot. I then tried taking the image and adding all the apps
    and preferences to it I thought might make it do what I wanted. I then
    burned that image. That CD would only then partially boot.

    Just wondering.

    I tried the same thing with more or less the same results that you got, or
    lack thereof, but then I realized that the main point of BootCD is to get
    OS X onto a single CD, and if you're gonna go through the trouble of
    cloning it to another partition on say an external firewire drive or
    something, you might as well just clone a complete system install from
    somewhere else or install a fresh system on the partition in the first
    place. After all, with most firewire drives today, space is hardly a
    problem, even if you throw on extra apps as you suggest.

    Booting a minimal system from a CD is very slow (though sometimes handy);
    booting a full system from firewire is blazing fast in comparison, so the
    speed (or disk space) you'd save by cloning the boot CD isn't all that
    relevant in comparison.

    There's already a program to do so: Carbon Copy Cloner. You can download it
    from Versiontracker.com.

    You use BootCD to make a bootable CD. You use Carbon Copy Cloner to clne a disk
    image to another disk or partition.
