Yes, the idea would be to strip down CentOS to a livecd image with
some space left for adding the mythtv packages (and their
dependencies).

There is already some work being done by Johnny and someone else I
forgot his name (sorry!) to have CentOS liveXXX media, so when that's
done it will probably "just" be a matter of comps editing and the
like.

BTW whoever is interested in this beast is more than welcome to join
in. The core mythdora guys are not that familiar with CentOS.
