Here is the script I use:

# Script to make your very own Current ISOs
# Author - Jeremy Mann
# Date Started - 09-05-2003
# First CD contains a bootable installation, kernels, boot disks,
# root disks and Slackware (minus KDE).
# Second CD contains all of KDE and leftovers, but not including source.
# That would mean *another* disc just for sources.
# Changelog:
# 03-22-2004: Added an exception for Gnome on the first disc. Current is just too
# big The 2nd ISO has Gnome and KDE.

DATE=`date +%m%d%y`
