I use my own script. I run it after every reinstallation, it sets up my: sound, my KDE splash screen, cool cursor, ... etc. Have a look at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...&pagenumber=25 "A bit of stupidity"

hi

dear friends,

if you want to make your own install try

mkisofs

with this u can make a bootable iso image of u r file system i mean hdd

depends

if you have every thing on u r /

i have done this on rh9 i dont know about fc3

then it would be some thing like this

<[th]# mkisofs -R -no-emul-boot -b boot/grub/stage2 -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o OS.iso / [th]>

the command is between [th]


it should make a bootable iso images then write it on u cd using cdrecord.

just check it by reinstalling on any other pc of same architecture and make sure its bootable cd.

if i am wrong at any point please correct me.

Another solution would be using Mondo Rescue to create bootable backup CD's or DVD's.
