   I am trying to make some changes, add a new program
to  Xen Live CD. Live CD is done very smartly to be
able to fit distrubutions and guest images. I have not
been able to get my head around it completely. I would
like to get in touch with someone who knows more about

In particular, 

-- How does sparse img files make it to CDROM ? I
could not spot any options in mkisofs.

-- How does sparse files from CDROM are available to
domains with R/W and not occupying all memory ? Temp
file space on disk is used ? OR COW does something
even smarter ?

-- normal way seems to have linuxrc, I do not see it.
Does "init" from the ramdisk starting point ?
