Make a custom ISO image for school?


I recycle computers for the school I teach at. I run them in Edubuntu. How do I make a custom image ISO, so I don't have to configure each computer in easy ubuntu and all that everytime I run a new operating system?

You can do it text based (recommended), use isomaster or reconstructor(<--mostly graphical stuff..i.e. logo, splash, etc)

I'm getting MUCH better at Linux, but I"m still a technical newbie.

I want the sources list in the new image, codecs, java and flash player. It seems like it can't be THAT hard, but I'm stuck. Tried to use ISO master and couldn't do it.

What distro are you using to do this with? It is best if you run a Ubuntu with which to do it. Then you open a root terminal, cd to the directory you need the files installed, and then use apt-get to install.

Starting to get it

We are using Edubuntu 6.10 "edgy" (Umm isn't "Feisty Fawn" days away now?)

I get what you are saying. I know how to open a root shell, cd to the directory I want, and use apt-get, but how to install it then into the image in ISO master?

And I'm going to put the sources list I want, as well as flash player, java and codecs...where all the components of these things live? well...I'm going to do some more learning I suppose...

Thanks for your help. 54 recycled school machines in an Oakland public school want to thank you, too.

Robert

Actually, I don't know how to install files via isomaster. But in command line, when you cd to the directory, use apt-get install <filename> and "apt-get remove" to delete packages. You may actually need to 'purge' the packages to get them off the install, but off-hand, I don't know the command.
