larch is a kit for building a live CD based on Archlinux.
Package selection is fully configurable, and a simple hard disk installer is also provided, the result being a completely standard and up-to-date Archlinux system. It should be possible to run the build scripts on most up-to-date Linux systems, so you don't already need an Arch system to build the CD.
Extensive documentation is provided.
"Until I've got something new sorted out you should be able to download the stuff as a tarball (larch_all.tar.gz), including all the docs, from http://www.savefile.com/files/5968615 "
