Making custom base-install CD
I would like to make a custom install CD for just the base system.
I understand that all you need is the following files from:
You have to somehow make the CD boot the rescue.bin image? Then you
could use dselect to get the rest of the packages you need.
Basically, I would like to have such a CD, and include a backup of my
/etc, /var, /home, /usr/local directories as well as dpkg selections.
This way, if I stuffed my system and had to re-install then all I would
have to do is:
Install base system, set up ADSL
dpkg --set-selections < /cdrom/dpkg_selections
dselect (skip "select" part) and install
Then copy over the backups of /etc, /var, /home, /usr/local
And I should be back and running.
