    Ubuntu Hardy all-in-one DVD: How?

    Hello,

    I'd like to make an all-in-one-live-dvd of various Ubuntu distros, eg. Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu.

    I have a blank system, on which I plan to install all three. No sharing of /home partition and/or files. Once all three are setup and OK, I plan to use remastersys to create a master dvd image.

    I then wish to use GRUB (on the dvd) to boot the selected live distro.

    I have no knowledge of remastersys except that I know it can be used to xfer an existing install to live CD.

    I don't care whether or not there is any interaction between the multiple distros on the DVD.

    Can this be done? Or is there a simpler way? Any and all suggestions welcome.

    For your reference when posting advice, commands, links, etc: my tech level: intermediate-high.

    I'd also like to include the server-install if it is not too difficult, as well as the 64-bit versions (My current blank system can handle 64 bit).
    Cheers,PRShah

    Sounds like a great idea !

    Love to see an Ubuntu 8.04.1 AIO DVDR disc
    with Ubuntu 8.04.1, Kbuntu 8.04.1 , Uubuntu EEE 8.04
    and extra deb/ubuntu files instead of using internet
    apt repositories.

    Thanks, your link gave me the clue that I need. I've been reading up for the past 4 hours on isolinux, etc etc, and I believe that I'm nearly ready to attempt this. For those who are interested, I will keep a running commentary here.
