debian-cd is hard work to configure and run, though. You will probably
also want cdimage--mainline--0 from my archive, which is the wrapper
scripts I use. Even then it can often be easier to customise an existing
image than to attempt to rebuild one from scratch.

The ISO image construction is done by debian-cd, yes, although not the
live filesystem construction.
