Jon, great to hear that you are interested to include ncWMS on OSGeo-Live.

What I suggest you do is join the OSGeo-Live email list, and officially 
note your interest (so other developers can comment on whether we 
include ncWMS or not).

The key criteria will be that the application is stable and fills a 
niche, and that you have all your docs and packaging ready on time.

High level answers to most of your questions are in our last press 
release here: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc_Press_Release_11

running to work, will touch base later. ...

I'd doubt it, but it would be very handy for our community if they did.  I've been having a heck of a time trying to compile GDAL, NetCDF and MapServer on some Linux versions.  It would be great if this facility could be available out of the box on the DVD for experimentation.
