DESCRIPTION
       livemedia-creator uses Anaconda, kickstart and Lorax to create bootable media that use the
       same install path as a normal system install. It can be used to make live  isos,  bootable
       (partitioned) disk images and filesystem images for use with virtualization.

       The general idea is to use virt-install to install into a disk image and then use the disk
       image to create the bootable media.

       livemedia-creator --help will describe all of the options available. At	the  minimum  you
       need:

       --make-iso  to create a final bootable .iso --iso to specify the Anaconda install media to
       use with virt-install --ks is the kickstart to use to install the system
