Custom Packages CD ?

As i posted in another post i have been screwing around with the Debian sarge installer and i want to be able to make a custom packages CD of what files i have currently installed so if i format i can just insert the CD when it askes for one.

kernel-image 2.6.x

Can i download the above into a directory then some how make the CD like the debian installer CD's ? also how can the files be downloaded as most of the above are more than just 1 file and install others to do with there package.

Thanks in advance.

You can create a text file with a list of installed packages, suitable for cloning, by doing this command:
dpkg --get-selections > packages.txt

After that you might want to look into the debian-cd package
