How to customize installation DVD/CD of Linux ?

I have one software which I can install on linux. I want to put that on installation CD of linux. So whenever I will install Linux it will automatically install websense.

How can I do that ?

I don't think you can actually do this (almost like slipstreaming a package into the source). I'm sure there's some sort of hard way of doing so that developers of that distro could work out, but getting them to do that (especially with websense) is probably out of the question. However, if you do a network install or for this matter, what would be called a kickstart install, then you could probably actually do it running post-scripting shell scripts. Meaning, that you could write a shell script that would execute (and install) websense after your system installs the OS.

Best of luck,
