Well, the thing about DFS is that dfsbuild is very flexible as far as
package selection goes -- it has a cfg file where you list your
preferred mirror and the debs you want to include. All those debs, plus
their deps, will be included on the generated ISO.
I've found it much easier to customize than Knoppix.
Not trying to force you into any one solution or anything, but I'd hate
for you to have to go to the effort to re-engineer a live CD build
system if what's out there already would work for you.
