I've built a CD-ROM that runs Cygwin X live from CD in a modest Cygwin
environment.  It's available at

Briefly, I was messing around to build Cygwin on a USB flash drive and 
posted to the Cygwin mailing list.  Fergus pointed out his instructions 
for building a Cygwin CD.  I realized that we have users who could really 
use Cygwin X on CD so I applied Fergus' instructions, made some 
modifications, and added a wizard to give the CD the feel of an 
application that has the sole purpose of running X.  The scripts that I 
wrote to make the wizard work are under the GPL.
