Very sorry if I'm suffering a misconception here...

Doesn't "remastering" tend to mean customising a Live distro, where you can't actually install new things and change it around whilst it's in use? (due to usually being more or less read only because of CD media)

Or do you mean much the same, only to remaster the install CD contents?

In the end, I'd have thought that it would be possible with any distribution, by similar-ish means- though the specifics for different distros I can't help with. It would depend how the system has been packaged onto the CD I guess- this would be different especially between "Live" intended to run straight off, which package a full installation on a CD rather than HD, and boot straight in, and an "Install" CD, which would presumably contain all the tarballs etc required to build up a system. I can't imagine there'd be an abundance of different ways to actually build up an install CD, but then I haven't gone crawling around the directory structure of too many so I can't totally verify.

The Live CDs I have looked in seem to use "cloop" images, but then most of the LiveCDs I've looked at were Knoppix based, so similarity shouldn't be too surprising.

you need to get a pack called "boot cd package". i recommend contacting the project manager of your favorite flavor to get the pack.
hope this helps.
