I was wondering what would be the best way to take a copy of Debian 5 or possibly 6 and strip it down absolutely nothing just to support a copy of VMware player.
The only things I would want would be a GNOME session that does not require a login, some type of network manager (probably the one that is for GNOME) and maybe a package manager like Synaptic. Other than I would run everything out of terminal.
How would I do this?
Also I would want to make this into a Clonezilla image or something so I could distribute it around my office.
