Trying to make a live cd with Ubuntu Customization Kit


I'm trying to make a live CD with UCK, and I've got it all working perfectly except for the proprietary Nvidia drivers. When I try to sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 it won't install properly giving me an error saying it won't work because it's chrooted (which it is), so I guess my question is how do I install the proprietary drivers into a chrooted environment so I can put it on a live CD?

I would just test it until I figured it out, but customizing the CD it about an hour long process after all is said and done so I'd rather avoid it.

Would it help if I had the same kernel running on the system as the one that will be on the live cd?

well i kinda solved my problem using remastersys. it takes a live snapshot of your filesystem and turns it into a live cd.. which while it works... it's really janky. when I boot into it it says I'm already logged in and the time applet for gnome crashes, and I'm sure I'll stumble upon a few more things, but it does work well enough for what I need it to do, but my problem still isn't really solved, so if anyone has any ideas I'm still looking for an alternative to this.
