Making a distribution
One of the things I often do in my line of work is install a Linux bridging
firewall. I generally install a minimal Debian, recompile the kernel, and
run my bridge and firewall scripts from bootmisc.sh.
What I'd really like is to create a distribution of my own that would
install automatically onto a PC, with minimal interactivity. For example, I
don't want to be asked about partitioning, I just want to wipe the disk,
create an ext3 partition and format it. I want vim, links, sshd (amongst
others). I want apt-get and a custom 2.4.23 kernel.
Is there a way to do this based on Debian (for apt-get etc)? I am a big
Debian fan, but even a minimal install is more than I need.
