When the CD boots I get the timeout value counting down from 5, and

there either. I can manually enter "blacklist=iTCO_wdt" on the
command line and that works, but the --append option seems to do
nothing at all.
Some earlier versions of the livecd-creator ignore this option and it
was a known bug. Related thread:
LiveCD-Tools 013 approach, and most of the pre-Fedora 9/10 related
changes, have been more radically changed, and are far more capable. In
other words, don't expect LiveCD-Tools to be fixed for Fedora 8.
Indeed, I see the last version released for F8 is 013.1:
At most, you could try rebuilding LiveCD-Tools from another distro
release to see if it fixes the issue. Of course, it will likely break
because of various changes in the distro. I know there were significant
changes in the distro from Fedora 8 to 9 which LiveCD-Tools 017 relies
on differently than 013.
Another option, which will likely work but may not fix your problem, is
to try LiveCD-Tools 013-8 release from the Extra Packages for Enterprise
Linux (EPEL), namely for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 5 (EL5).
For the .src.rpm files, I assume you know, download, run "rpmbuild
--rebuild" and use the resulting RPM in /usr/src/redhat (assuming you
haven't changed the default RPM macros).
Again, 013-8 from EPEL it should work, but I don't know if it addresses
your issue. Then again Rahul may have modified it for some EL5
differences, and it may not work. I've never tried it myself.
Is this broken in this version? I know some may say "upgrade to
or something like that, but that's not really possible for us at this
time. We're working towards that, but I'd like to be able to
blacklist that module during the LiveCD creation.
Considering Fedora 8 went EOL and has had no security fixes since
shortly into 2008, you should consider either a newer Fedora** release
or Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 5.**

You already know Red Hat as the entity dedicated to 100%
no-IP-strings-attached, community software development.
But do you know where CIOs rate Red Hat versus other
software and services firms for their own, direct needs?
