Creating a custom Debian CD set

Hi guys,

Wondering if you could point me in the right direction.

I'm on a personal project to build myself a custom Debian CD set, of which the following are some of the changes that I would like to make from the vanillia version

- change of splash screen
- change of bootup screen
- change of default wallpaper
- change of default theme
- change of default website on Firefox
- change/update some existing packages
- remove/add packages

I guess, in general, what I'm really asking for is for information as to how I may go about customizing my current Debian install on my current system to exactly the way that I would like it to be, and then creating a CD set for future installations so that these can be passed on to whoever wants it ...

Honest -> its going to be a customized version for my extended family. My little way to trying to leave behind a personal touch ...

Any help or information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks : )

I think DFS will build a live-cd, that might be as close as you'll get before needing to build an entire linux distro
