I meant for my own personal use, AcePlayer, in terms of removing useless languages. :)

When you said languages I assumed you were referring to languages translations (japanese, chinese, german, french, etc) that it installs and takes 2GBs or so.

If you were (and I'm on the right track) then there are loads of other options that can be taken off such as printer drivers which take another 1-2GBs too.

Keeping on the same track it would be great if we could get rid of the options that Jas and the rest add that we don't need to use in each of our systems (like ss2 patch).

Thanks again to Rammjet. I have been playing aroiund with Iceberg package maker and it's great. It's super easy to make packages and adding them to the install disk has been pretty painless as well. :whistle:

Not impossible, but you really need to know what you are doing.

- Download Iceberg package maker

- Make installer package(s) with files you want to install

- Mount the iso file as read/write. In Terminal, type:
hdiutil mount -readwrite /path-to-iso/iso-name.iso

- Add packages to iso in /System/Installation/Packages

- Modify installer file:
Drag this file to text editor: /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg/Contents/OSInstall.dist
Add packages to list about 1/3 way down and other entries farther down on page.

Okay i feel like such a freaking noob but How in the heck do you open OSInstall.mpkg I see it in the terminal but in finder I can't even get in the disk image.
