I have a Finnix live CD. I can customize it by remastering it. When I boot with the live CD I need to make a little change in the boot profile

The boot profile before making the changes is

linux apm=power-off vga=791 initrd=minirt quiet

The boot profile after making the change become

linux apm=power-off vga=791 initrd=minirt quiet root=/dev/sr0

Now, I need to make this change (adding root=/dev/sr0) permanent. How can I do that?

Find isolinux.cfg in your CD file system (mounted at /mnt/hda1 in your remastering guide). In this file there is a line like

APPEND apm=power-off vga=791 initrd=minirt quiet

edit it like you want before launching stage1 and stage2 scripts.
