Hello all,
I downloaded sms and it looks great so far (hey, I could have posted that on first looks but...)

I have one question: How can I (if that is possible) install an extra program and then rebuild the live cd? To be more specific, I use Peer Guardian on my winPC (u know, a little bit more secure) and I know there is a similar program for linux, called MoBlock.

PS: I am quite new to linux, so please be gentle Laughing

Hello and welcome.
As fas as moblock, there is a Slackware package available here
To install Slackware packages (ending with .tgz) on HDD installed system use the command "installpkg" e.g. "installpkg package.tgz"
If you want a livecd only, with some extra apps, it's easier and faster to add a package than to rebuild the whole system.
SMS is a modular LiveCD, which means that you can add modules (packages).

1. Download moblock and other packages you may want.
2. Boot from SMS.Live.CD and use the command "tgz2lzm" to convert .tgz format to .lzm (liveCD format) e.g. "tgz2lzm moblock.tgz moblock.lzm"
3. Save all converted modules (.lzm) to a fat32 disk, linux partition whould be the best if it's available, maybe burn them into a CD, USB flash disk. SMS has the ability to write to NTFS partition too, but I'm always nervous when a linux OS writes on Win OS partition.
4. Go to windows and copy the content of the SMS.Live.CD to a folder. You should have folders boot and sms.
Under folder sms/modules place your packages and rebuild the iso with the given scripts in sms directory. make_iso.bat it's for windows.
5. Boot with your liveCD to test it, and follow the above steps for adding packages or configurations.
