can I use Virtualbox to remaster a distro?


Actually, this question is whether I should use a virtual machine to remaster a distro. I want to remaster a certain DVD-sized distro into a CD-sized version of itself. But to do that, normally I would have to go to the store and buy a pack of DVD-Rs, and before doing that, I will try to "cheat" that by running the liveCD ISO in a virtual machine, installing it on the virtual hard drive, and then remastering it.

I'm just wondering if remastering inside a virtual machine would create any complications that would interfere with remastering.
