So squashfs-lzma is included with the kernel, then? If so, that is great,
because I don't have to build it then.

Another question, is there anything special run at startup by the LiveCD
which isn't run by a standard Arch release, such as startup scripts?

That should do it for now (I will probably have more questions as I get
farther along with the build process). Thanks,
