make customized installation of cygwin

Fri Apr 19 04:14:00 GMT 2002


I would like create a customized version of cygwin - a cygwin
distribution which includes Perl TK, some perl utilities of my own, some
other extras like Tk::FileDialog and the like. I would like to be able
to package that up, then install this with a script similar to setup.exe
on other computers. I had a look at the setup.exe script - I cannot
customize it as it is binary code. I also tried to simply zip up my
customized cygwin distribution and install on another computer. This
didn't work. 

My question is: is there any way to create a customized version of
cygwin, then use an install script that installs cygwin properly on any
other computer (this would include doing the mkpasswd -l > etc/password
and mkgroup -l >/etc/group commands and whatever else is needed to
install cygwin properly). 

Can anyone help me out with this? 

Any help is greatly appreciated.
