How can I make a live CD/DVD from my harddisk installation?
In other words, I would like to create a boot CD from Ubuntu that is installed on my PC, because I want to include the updated packages in it.
Is it possible?

I just made one for myself a few hours ago! I used RemasterSys. The steps to install are given on the page. After installing it, you can type the following commands on a terminal:
sudo remastersys dist my-hd.iso
to create a distributable image named my-hd.iso. You can burn this on a DVD and share it around. Just make sure you have removed crud like cached packages, unused config files. On a terminal type
sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt get autoclean
Again, if you are not a commandline guy, install Ubuntu Tweak to clean old packages, kernels and other crud from your system.
If comamnd line isnt for you, then you can goto Gnome Menu > Admninistration > Remastersys Backup.
There is also a guide given on Ubuntu.com, if you are willing to DIY.
This should do the trick:
