I need to build a custom Debian-based distribution to be easily and quickly installable on multiple machines. How can I build a distribution like this and package it so I can either
- Install it via a bootable USB drive
- Flash it onto the hard disk of the machines so no install will be necessary.
I'd like to start with the smallest distro necessary, so I'm using the business-card edition (which sits at about 40MB). I have a few packages I'd like to install on it, a few configuration file changes, and a few scripts. How can I package the complete picture into an installable distribution?
