Has anybody here ever customized Knoppix Linux and burned their own custom CD to use instead of the default distributable?

I want to run a custom confg, but I don't want it dependent on config data stored on a floppy, compactflash, or a USB Keyring - I just want it all self-contained on the one CD.

Hi Axe,

Mount the ISO file, copy the files to a local directory, make your edits to the Knoppix distribution, and use mkisofs to create a new ISO file.

Too bad you can't mount ISO files read-write eh?

mount -o loop file.iso /mnt/iso, or
mount -o loop -t 9660 file.iso /mnt/iso

Oh wait... stop the press. Found a couple great links.

Knoppix Remastering Howto

and, I think, a handy script that automates the tasks outlined in the link above...

Thanks, I did find the remastering link (Btw, mod your URL tags to remove the " characters, hehe)..

But I hadn't seen the CD Customizer, thanks.
