[ros-dev] Merging liveCD and Install CD

I have been thinking about what will be needed for my gsoc proposal.
Merging the live cd and install cd of React OS is one of the goals.
Though the file structure is different on the install and live cd.
The install cd has all the React OS files in a cab file. While live cd
has everything in a folder.
I do understand the differences are larger than this. Though this has
a large duplication of files. I assume having the files in folders is
the best solution because the live cd needs access to the files
I was wondering what peoples preferred methods would be.
People mentioned various things on irc. like extracting from the cab
file on the fly, or installing the cab to ram disk and so on.
I was wondering what peoples views is on what they would want. Feel
free to say your preferences. I may not choose the best solution in my
proposal because I will only have 3 or 4 weeks to work on that part.
I personally don't think loosing the 100mb of saved space from the cab
is a bad thing. It will still fit on 1 cd(i'm guessing 150-200mb) and
is better than burning 2 cds(1 for live and 1 for install).
Any comments or advice are much appreciated.
