RE: Custom cd's


I tried one of those, had to do some hack for bf2.4.  This I what I'm
trying to do.  I have a dump/restore image file or about 40 megs (cd #2)
I boot with cd #1 w/ bf 2.4 and base only (but I need the dump/restore
package on cd #1) and restore from cd #2 to the newly created

which creates an ISO with base-only pkgs, from basedebs.tar.
Alternatively I wrote this little script that lets you put whichever
debs you want on there.  Tried it with the b-f2.4 flavour.  With just
the base debs on there the ISO is 31MB.  It doesn't provide any way to
automatically install non-base debs that are on the ISO, but you can
always apt-get install them once the system is up.
