hello i've been using this guide: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-fedora-livecd/
to build a livecd based on fedora. now i'm guessing its a little outdated but i got all of it to work up until it came time to make the image file (i suppose i should also mention this is the first time i've really ever done anything like this with linux)

this is where i'm getting messed up:

# livecd-creator --repo=c6,file:///var/www/html/repo/core --package=bash \
--package=kernel --package=grub --fslabel=Fedora-minimal-LiveCD

now i adjusted the --repo to --config and --package to --base-on (after i looked at the help file i think this is what they are supposed to be, because repo and package where not recognized as commands)

so the "updated" command looks like this:

# livecd-creator --config=c6,file:///var/www/html/repo/core --base-on=bash \
--base-on=kernel --base-on=grub --fslabel=Fedora-minimal-LiveCD

but now its telling me that --config=c6,file:///var/www/html/repo/core is not a file or directory (though i did make a local repository at /var/www/html/repo/core earlier in the guide.

It seems you're following what may be a seriously outdated guide.

For usage type

That guide is horribly outdated. Do not rely on it. Refer to
