    New distro based on ubuntu?

    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

    remember kiddies: sudo rm -rf= BAD!, if someone tells you to do this, please ignore them unless YOU WANT YOUR SYSTEM WIPED

    I think your looking for one of these. 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).
