    Question Remastering Help

    I just downloaded a ubuntu minimal cd and installed it and everything,
    my goal is to create a super lightweight distro based on ubuntu with openbox, slim, conky, almost like crunchbang linux..

    So how would i go about creating my own distro from my minimal install?
    Do i need to install synaptic package manager?

    Please help

    ( Ubuntu 10.04 is the best! Just a little too heavy for my netbook !)

    OKay the one thing is, i would like to include all wireless drivers needed in this distro.
    would i just need to download these and remasterys would include them?

    Is this just for yourself or do you plan on releasing it?

    Whatever packages are installed get included on the remastered livecd.

    The only real limit is the resultant iso cannot be bigger than 4gig.

    And I guess your's will fit on a cd.

    okay so i did a minimal install beside my current ubuntu 10.04 install
    everything went fine, i restarted went to grub and there was no option for my second ubuntu install.
    i go into my normal ubuntu and see the 78 gb partition and all the files..

    what could be the problem?
