Package an existing Ubuntu installation into an ISO image

How would you pack a current installation of Linux to a bootable ISO image?

What I'm trying to do is have my current Ubuntu installation on a DVD and whenever I'm using a different computer, I could boot from the DVD and have my whole environment already there.


Use Remastersys. It does exactly what you want and the two times I tried it, I did not bump into any issues
