Basically that is the idea. The hardest question in this approach is how
to make it maintenable. If we want the tools too live, it should be
nearly automatic to build new version of the distribution, including
new tools, tools upgrade and so on.

Otherwise, you will soon get pissed of if you have to manually rebuild
the modified ISO (by dumping the content on your hard drives,
apt-geting the software you want to indlude and regenerate the ISO as
described on Knoppix website).

Do you know if the Knoppix script for creation of the ISO are easy to
use ?
