How to customize live Ubuntu CD?

I want to make a boot CD that when used can run (without installing) an copy of Ubuntu already installed on my system with all the same preferences and programs as the version I am using at the moment.

I am running version 11.10 if it matters.

This question is not a duplicate as I'm asking for how to make a boot disk from an existing install, whereas the other one is for customising a plain ISO. – Ronan Jan 24 '12 at 14:16

I use Relinux quite often to build a live/installable iso from a preconfigured system, including settings and files in my home folder. Relinux Download page

A little guide to get you going Relinux guide
To keep your settings you will need to run this from terminal cd && sudo cp -r . /etc/skel/ before you make the iso. Any problems, just ask.
