Before we get to the nuts and bolts, here is the high level of what we are going to do. We are creating a bootable debian-installer ISO. To do this we use a tool called debian-cd, which is basically a build file and lots of perl scripts that automate everything. debian-cd requires that we have a local debian repository, and that is where most of the work is. Then you configure debian-cd to point to your local repository, and you tell it what you want it to make, there are tons of options here, but I am going to give instructions for the i386 netinstaller CD. Once it is configured you just run a few make tasks and you are done. Now without further blabbing I'll cut to the chase.
