creating a custom linux, not meaning lfs...


Im wondering how one would go about taking a version of red hat, fully customized (kernel, programs, etc), and turn it into a bootable install disk. Im not even sure if it's possible to do, short of imaging, of course. also, how would i do that using an image so it just loads that image to a new hard drive, configured and ready to go? i realize some changes regarding hardware would need to change, but thats alright.

Perhaps one of these will do what you wish. Why invent a new wheel?

actually, at work we have systems that run on it, and instead of configuring each system individually, we want to just load up a fully configured system. we also sell the units to customers, and would like to provide them with that install disk as well. it seems imaging is the only way to go, but where would i make the image, and how would i get it installed on a disk?
