I want to create my own customized Ubuntu derivative and this question already gave me a very good start. My requirements are quite specific I want to roll out a CD with

  • Set of users who are supposed to run them (root, admin, guest) pre-installed
  • With their passwords already set
  • Installation not asking for creating users on booting or during OS installation
  • Autologin to guest user

Is this even possible?

Thanks to the community in advance :)

As far as i know, guest users are created automatically upon login. So, last step may not be possible. yes a regular user without admin power will be – Anwar Shah Sep 7 '12 at 11:11
ok, I can work withough having autologin, what about other two? What about installing without having installation asking for users to create, not even root user. – Juzer Ali Sep 7 '12 at 16:48
