No, the information for doing this is very clear in the LiveCD project page.

I asked on IRC a few days ago if someone had rebuilt the LiveCD with
persistence and was willing to share it, and Karanbir asked me to tell him
if I was going to build my own.

That is why I'm posting here, I was lazy to see if he was loged in irc.

I didn't want to post this on the centos list, to avoid other users who may
wish the feature for a while, until I see if it is wise to let them (the
other users) know.

No problem (until now), but thank you any way.

A cup of coffee I suggest :)
