I have been doing this for years @ $work with sysinstall. Since the death of sysinstall, I've been working on the replacement. However, you can download Hybrid ISO/IMG images here:
and here's PDF documentation on how to use it:
and here's the instructions on how to "burn" it (including full instructions for pretty much every Operating System; and even some tools for Windoze):
Feel free to ask questions.
P.S. It's *so* much more than *just* taking the installer and Hybridizing it to work with CD versus USB seamlessly. The "Druid" line is a master-work that took 7 years to produce.
P.P.S. Been working on rewriting other aspects of the installer before we revisit the idea of merging Druid components to achieve what you're asking. For now, we have the Druid to show us a proof-of-concept that it's not only achievable, but it's damned slick when you do get to the hybridized arena.
