So, after working with Systemback and making distributable isos from it, I'm pretty sure I can copy the files Systemback puts into the syslinux folder of a live iso and believe this would work because the DVDs made from Systemback isos boot without error. 

However, the Systemback software has got me rethinking using Black Dog Image Creator at all. I've still got some "personalizing" to do for the C4C Lubuntu ReSpin, but here's what I'm liking about Systemback so far:

1. The creation of a distributable "live" iso with Systemback is incredibly easy, and they each boot in every 32-bit machine I've tried them (burned on DVD) in.
2. Systemback has the ability to use Ubiquity, but claims to be able to work with whatever bootloader I choose (would this then work with Yaboot for PowerPC I wonder? I've yet to see if Systemback installs on PPC).
3. The polished GUI of Systemback makes it a real visual treat to work with (for a non-programmer like me) and because it's a great, easy-to-use backup system too, I've got no problem including it for the end-user.
4. They've overcome the 4GB iso limit! I've created several isos larger than 4GB that are both live and successfully install a working system too.
