Customize PartedMagic lice CD


Hi guys & gals :-)

The sad story of my life is that I often end up providing support for my friends & family on their M$-Winblows machines; especially when the OS needs a fresh install!

To make my life slightly simple, I usually make a bootable rescue DVD of their C: drive. To do this I usually use PartedMagic live CD to boot into the machine, the use Clonezilla to make an image of the drive and then make a bootable iso image.

I am no expert on linux distros; but what I noticed is that Clonezilla always downloads this file 'debian-live-for-ocs-1.2.10-14-i486.iso' for making a bootable image.
The problem is that I live in Bangladesh, and fast reliable internet connection is not yet a fact of life; as a result I often end up getting this error......

***************************
We need Debian live CD for Clonnezilla to create clonezilla cd.
Downloadling the iso file from http://free.nchc.org.tw/clonezilla-l...ve-for-ocs.iso...
Connecting to free.nchc.org.tw (211.73.64.9:80)
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
Unable to download http://free.nchc.org.tw/clonezilla-l...ve-for-ocs.iso!
Program terminated!
***************************

Even when there is reliable connection, it still takes quite a while to download, as the file is around 100 MB.

So I end up booting into the machine again with Clonezilla live CD, just to make the final bootable image!!

So I was hoping that may be it will be possible to customize PartedMagic live CD so that it contains the file 'debian-live-for-ocs-1.2.10-14-i486.iso'.

So what do you think ??? is this the way to go.... or just another half baked idea

Thanks in advance
Jadukor

You can easily add in if you remaster the disk. Then you might have to change how it works to look locally for that file.
