I want to add some drivers to the CentOS LiveCD. These drivers are not present on out of the box CentOS LiveCD. So Once I add the the new drivers to the LiveCD, and then boot up the server with the LiveCD then I am hoping that it will recognize the new hardware.

I have been googling around this but haven't found a process by which I could add the drivers to a CentOS LiveCD.

AFAIK, adding the driver will need to re-compile the LiveCD kernel. But just now sure about the process.

Any pointer in this direction will be of great help to me.

What specific drivers are you looking to add? – ewwhite Sep 9 '12 at 22:16

CentOS has some instructions on building a custom Live CD.

The process uses a kickstart file to determine what is on the Live CD, so you can perform any customizations possible through kickstart.
