This document describes how to make your own CDs from different releases of
the Red Hat Linux distribution (up to and including release 9), equivalent
to the ones commercially available from Red Hat.
The structure of the distribution is described, as well as the procedure
needed to include updated RPMS into the distribution. Some hints and
examples on how to customize the default installation are also presented.
Scripts to automate as much as possible the (re)generation of the CD images
are included. Prerequisites are a good network connection, and a CD-writer
(a working knowledge of shell scripting could be really useful, though).
