    Linux Distro Remastering Suggestions Needed
    Hey everyone, I am currently working on a project to make a custom linux distro for creating bootable usb drives or cd/dvds. The distro will be run from a live system, with the isos on a separate storage media. The distro will have programs like: -Gparted - for disk partitioning or wiping -Multisystem - for making multiboot drives -Unetbootin - for making bootable drives -Cd/Dvd burning (specifics undecided so far) -Chromium - for finding new isos -Deluge - for downloading new isos I have experience with remastering isos and installing packages, I don't need help there, but I do need suggestions on a lightweight, barebones distro that would be ideal for this project. I've considered Lubuntu, KNOPPIX, and possibly even Tiny Core as candidates, but I want to know (from more experienced Linuxers) if there is a better alternative. Thanks, RoyFour
