First of all sorry i didnt really know where to put this so can someone please move it later.
I want to create my own distribution based on Ubuntu linux. Mostly i just want to repackage somethings so that way i can install it on different systems in my house without having to reinstall all the apps i have. can someone please point me in the right direction?

I am very new to Linux, but this might help you get started...

sure, there are ways to burn a live DVD or CD on ubuntu.

searching in synaptic is a good way to start

I think your looking for one of these. (http://linuxappfinder.com/development/bootlivecdcreators) I guess go with iBuild first.

I was thinking of another live CD maker originally but it doesn't seem to be listed, maybe someone will remember it....

I would recommend uck (ubuntu customization kit). It is very a very handy tool that creates ubuntu isos (though it doesn't have a GUI).

I always warn against reconstructor (!!!!). It doesn't do what you want, at least not in the GUI. You have to always use the command line to get things done (trust me, I tried it and it wasn't pretty).

That's the one. Darn my memories going young. Try that one first OP, can always give the ones on linux app finder a go too.

Edit: Really smartboyathome? I never heard that... oh well, lots of suggestions. Install them all and give em a shot, always a fun thing to do when presented with lots of choices :).

Seems like it would be easier to make a meta-package that includes all of your setup changes then email the .deb to yourself.
