I don't think you want to compile everything from source - that
would be too much. You have to make some assumptions. Already
with the Doyen CD you are assuming at least an x86 processor.
A simple script that would copy all the required binaries and
start the necessary processes might be ok in many cases. But be
careful not to overwrite any of the user's existing stuff without
warning! And also provide an un-install script.

Different Linux distributions and even different libraries in
different versions is likey to cause some problems. Perhaps this
can be minimized by using static linking as much as possible.
But in any case since the Doyen CD is based on Fedora, at least
it should be possible to configure things so installation is
possible on all Red Hat distros. There is a good chance this
might also work with recent versions of SuSE.

Maybe there should also be a Debian/Knoppix variant of the

Better would be to include the necessary yum/yast/apt ...
repositories on the CD and instructions on how to use the
native install for each distro. OK... this does sound like
a bit of extra work! :)
