There have been some requests for me to give out the "TRADE SECRET" of how I make the UbuKuXu ISOs.

32-bit

You need working knowledge of the usage of VirtualBox.

1. Install Xubuntu on VirtualBox-OSE and add the MedibuntuRepo (see repo howto on medibuntu.org)
2. Open Synaptic Package Manager and search for all the software as I have listed in those posts
3. Download everything and install
4. Open a terminal and type the following

sudo cp /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb /mnt/share/packages/

where /mnt/share is the mount point of the shared folder of my VirtualBox.

5. Shutdown Xubuntu

6. Create and install a new Kubuntu Virtual Machine on VirtualBox
7. Copy all packages from the VirtualBox shared folder to synaptic cache in a terminal like this

sudo cp /mnt/share/packages/* /var/cache/apt/archives/

8. Install the medibuntu repo and refresh apt as described in the medibuntu repo how-to.
9. Open Adept Package Manager and search for all the software as I have listed in those posts
10.Download everything and install
11.Open a konsole and type the following

sudo cp /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb /mnt/share/packages/

where /mnt/share is the mount point of the shared folder of my VirtualBox.

12.Shutdown Kubuntu

13.Create and install a new Ubuntu Virtual Machine on VirtualBox.
14.Install aptoncd through gnome-terminal using
sudo apt-get install aptoncd
15. After the install type the following

sudo apt-get clean

16.Copy all packages from the VirtualBox shared folder to synaptic cache in a terminal like this

sudo cp /mnt/share/packages/* /var/cache/apt/archives/

17.Install the medibuntu repo and refresh apt as described in the medibuntu repo how-to.
18.Open Synaptic Package Manager and search for all the software as I have listed in those posts
19.Download everything and install
20.Open a gnome-terminal and type the following

sudo aptoncd

21. AptOnCD will open, click create
22. AptOnCD will list packages in your /var/cache/apt/archives folder
22. You may add any extra packages; I added Peazip
23. Then click Burn to create the iso
24. Burn iso to a rewritable and verify data
25. Do real world tests on all three distros with the router turned off. I have a dedicated 6 Gb partition /dev/sda10 on my hard disk for testing.

64 bit
Same as above except that all compiling and testing is real as VirtualBox is yet to have support for 64 bit guest OS. I heard VMWare (Player) has ??
So for 64 bit I copy the packages from /var/cache/apt/packages to my pendrive as follows

sudo cp /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb /media/disk/packages/

where /media/disk is the mount point of my pen drive, and packages is a folder in it
