|some of those things (partitioning) can be done before creating the cd. others require the addition of scripts. but when you know what you want the cd to be like, the easist way to remaster is http://damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/index.php/Mkmydsl|
that will let you add pretty much anything you want to dsl and create an iso. if you also want to remove things from dsl, that's when mkmydsl isn't enough.
Thanks for the info.
In regards to what I wrote above - I took a look at that thread and it is not extremely clear on more exact steps to achieve exactly what were are looking to do here
So have a look at this.
Say you are on the PC that you just did steps 1 - 17 above on - meaning you installed DSL onto this machine as described above, you have booted into DSL via this new hard drive installation as described above, and then installed all the DSL programs you wanted, set all the program settings the way you want them to be, arranged the desktop icons/created new icons the way you want them to appears etc. At this point everything is running on this computer EXACTLY the way you want your installation to be.
From this point, how would 1 (step by step as described above) create a DSL installation CD that when installed in the method outlined in steps 1-14 above WOULD NOT be a plain vanilla installation like you get with a standard DSL CD - BUT INSTEAD would install and be exactly like this computer (new additional settings, programs, etc) you are on in step 17?
Or you can look at it this way.
1st we will call all the programs and settings you get in a plain vanilla installation of DSL from the ISO you download from this site - Programs: "A", "B", and "C" and settings "1", "2", and "3"
By Step 17 in the steps mentioned in our previous post, we now have a DSL installation with the original programs "A", "B", and "C" but we have also added programs "D", "E" and "F" as well as changed settings "1", "2" and "3" to new settings "4", "5", and "6"
How do we create a DSL CD from this point that will have all off these new settings and programs when installed as described in steps 1-14?
Anybody on this?
Thanks in advance
