RE: linux-image issue
Same result as before in both instances that I said I would try. It
Attempts to install the linux-image pkg but fails during the 'unpacking required packages' with the red-screen of death. :/
So what does this say to you? Should I be thinking the linux-image pkg is somehow bad? If that is the case then why can I install this same pkg via dpkg or via apt-get after an install of a std debian iso? Why would it only fail to install if its included into a custom iso?

I'm afraid I do not see the point in attempting to install the iso that was created when my linux-image does not exist in it? I wouldn't think it would rule anything out with regard to linux-image since it will never get installed because it doesn't exist on the ISO.
I'll go ahead and do it for kicks.
Also, I have cleaned out tmp/ again and run simple-cdd with --local-packages to make sure that the iso gets into the mirrow, and then I built the iso again without removing the tmp/ (so that the linux-image would still be there) without the --local-packages args.
I send an email here after lunch sometime with whatever the results may be.
Again, appreciate all the attention to this.

this is exactly what i expected...

well, i would still recommend trying to install from this, to rule out that the
error was caused by your custom linux-image package rather than some other
