1) please don't double post. it's the rules

2) you are joking i take it? you really expect someone to tell you how to write an entire OS installation program? that's no mean feat... all i'd suggest is to back up what you've got and decompress the system. you're NOT gonna get your own installer... unelss of course you feel like spending 1000 man hours writing one...
