[lug] Creating installation disks?

I need to create an installation image and was wondering if people could
give me a couple of pointers of how to get started.
I have a golden disk-drive that I want to be able to clone quickly. I
think that the easiest way would be to build a bootable CD that can
serve as an installation disk. I've managed to get a bootable ISO image
burnt to a CD by following the directions on
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Bootdisk-HOWTO/index.html . I've also looked
at kickstart and have the beginnings of a configuration file.
What do I need to do next? I would like to push everything into a ISO
file initially so that I can check it before I start making silver
coasters. I think that I will create a giant tar of my golden drive's
root partition and use kickstart's scripting ability to copy it to a
partiton that I create on a new drive, but what else will I need to do
so that for example /boot is installed?
Thanks for any pointers,
