    Creating custom installation CD's for Linux


    Hello!

    I have an ambitious self-study project going on.
    I'm going to install Linux From Scratch (the project) to get more familiar
    hwo things work. I have installed Gentoo before and from stage1 tarball,
    so I don't like to think myself as a complete novice.

    However, one part of my goal is rather undocumented or I just don't know
    where to look. Sure I can install a system inside from another linux system,
    but if I eventually need to spread my own work to multiple computers?
    Would turn to be quite a hassle to build a system from scratch all the time.

    Thus, I'm look ing for a way to create an installer or so for it.
    I'm not completelly sure how Linux distro installers work, but
    I think it's just a set of scripts installing the packages and base system.

    Is there any allready existing modifiable base I couild use to create my
    own installer which does as I request it?

    Sorry, I'm having a hard time explaining it, but hopefully you got what I meant
    and dind't go all tl;dr at this poist.

    Not sure if it's really what you're looking for, but maybe you could look into something like CloneZilla.
