Creating a Personal Live Distro DVD
« on: September 27, 2009, 09:09:24 AM »
Was wondering if there was an easy way (utility with wizard) or step by step instructions available on how to create your own LIVE CD or DVD Distro of Linux?

I use Fedora and Ubuntu as well as Knoppix. I would like to create my own Knoppix like Live CD or DVD with custom programs installed prior to wrapping it up into an ISO, but havent had any success in making it work.

Thanks
