Upgrade Base-System of Ubuntu Livecd


Hi,
I am using the Ubuntu 7.10 Livecd with some modifications I did, and I wanted to update the base-system to the most recent release of Ubuntu.
Once I have chrooted into the custom ISO's root filesystem do I use:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
or
Code:
aptitude update
aptitude upgrade
or neither?

Question

I contacted the author of the guide I used to customize the Ubuntu Livecd, and he said to use:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
So I did...
After I requashed the filesystem with
Code:
sudo mksquashfs ./isonew/custom ./isonew/cd/casper/filesystem.squashfs
, I got various failure messages which were of the form:
Code:
/certain/file not found: creating empty file
. After I made the iso, burned it to a DVD, and I booted it up, the live cd dropped me to "BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu7) Built-in shell (ash)". Does anyone know why/any remedies to this problem?

I forwarded this question to the author of the guide as well, but he has yet to respond. So please help me if you can!!!

Essentially, what I want to do is now that I have customized my ISO, I want to keep those customizations instead of having to apply all of them to a new Ubuntu distribution ISO image.

Solved it!
I will just download the new Ubuntu livecd. I found the packages I had installed from this guide: http://www.watchingthenet.com/show-l...on-ubuntu.html
