Casper documentation, and building LiveCD:s

I'm not sure if this is the place for such a question, but I've been
trying to build a custom Ubuntu live CD from scratch, and finding
documentation on Casper (manpages, wikientries etc) or live CD building
in general has been sort of difficult.
There are entries in the wikis for editing the existing live CD:s, but
stripping these of all the packages i don't want by hand is tons of work
and simply not practical for someone looking to build an Ubuntu CD imho.
I'd like to have some sort of tool to create a live system identical to
the installed system on a machines harddrive, or a guide in the wiki for
creating a live CD from scratch, together with manpages or other
documentation for Casper and the tools involved in the process.
As an (possibly preferred?) alternative, perhaps is could be a good idea
to have a live CD on the FTP mirrors, equivalent of an Ubuntu CLI
install, for users to use with 210MB CD:s and a casper-rw USB pendrive.
I myself don't seem to have the knowledge to make this happen though...
