You need to mess with the boot-floppies package for this. I'm not sure how
much work is needed to nobble the necessary questions. The boot-floppies
mailing list is the place to ask about this if looking at the code doesn't
make it obvious.

This is the preserve of debian-cd
I'm a bit out of date on recent changes but you add a debian/local hierarchy
with your new packages in and set the LOCAL=1 variable in

You can get boot-floppies to use these packages over the normal ones too when
you rebuild it.

read the docs for the above packages and you will at least be able to ask
intelligent questions either here or on boot-floppies, as appropriate.

It's fair to say that there is no 'Making customised Debian-CD's HOWTO'
SFAIK. If you wrote one for woody it would no doubt be appreciated.
