Adding software in an ISO image

Good Day,

1-Can I add my own rpm-packages on opensuse iso cd.
So next time I install suse they show up just like suse distribution RPMs.

2-Can I add my environment variable for any particular pakage on iso cd?

Thank you.

In answer to 1:

When you add an RPM to the install disk of a Linux distribution such as OpenSuse, you don't have the original distribution any more; you have something called a respin instead.

OpenSuse has a tool called Kiwi for creating respins; you can find a HOWTO at

Hope that helps!
