osx terminal actually uses bash now instead of tcsh. so it might work might not due to that osx is a hybrid system

If you are going to do this, do it on a VM first to make sure you do it right. It will keep your host system uncluttered with files that you arent sure what the are.

Also, I followed this and did create a working CD... It is harder to install/remove the things you want. Not because of the package manager, but because of dependencies and configuration files. I suggest you try to make a Live CD with a pure system, no mixed systems. Knoppix isnt fully Debian. It can be converted to Debian Sid, but it removes and adds its own packages as it goes. It also only lets you do an Install of Debian Sid.. no live cd version.

Look into making a Debian, Slackware, or Gentoo Live CD. It will simplify it with a pure distro system. IMHO.

There is a Debian package (live-helper) which will create a LiveCD (or USB image) from the standard repositries or custom/specific repositries, and makes custom CD a snip....

The only problem I see is getting knoppix onto mac's filesystem, i don't know if it supports it. Otherwise, since you aren't compiling anything, i see no reason why it wouldn't, just type `sh` or `bash` at the terminal before you use the commands from the instructions.

FreeBSD has a Linux capatibility layer, which I understand can run about 90% of Linux apps. Most of the stuff you will be running (tar, apt, etc.) are pretty simple, and will probably work. (sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compatibility_layer , http://wiki.freebsd.org/linux-kernel).

I'm not sure, but it MIGHT just work...

I use live-helper in conjunction with various techniques to make my Debian Live CD. I use a few custom shell scripts that take care of certain things that make the live-helper build process more complicated. I will be doing a write up on it when I get some time. The only thing with the live-helper package is that it is in its early stages and doesnt have great documentation.

There isnt any reason why you cant follow that Knoppix Remastering tutorial on OSX. It is the same process. To use apt, you have to switch to a bash shell and chroot into the Knoppix root directory on your hard drive. Then apt will run as if it was running in Knoppix. (It is, its just chrooted.)
