I'm trying to create a ISO file for my entire system - swap, root, and home (3 partitions), so in the next time I'll install Fedora, i'll have everything I need already installed. How can I do that? I found a way with the "Disks" software, (partition -> gears -> create partition image), but I can't create a iso file, while i'm using the partition.. So how can I do that? What is the proper way for this?

And one more thing, I need that, but i'm not really know how to use that after - I mean normally, I downloaded Fedora WS ISO, burn to DOK, insert to pc, and the installation program do everything. So if i'll have iso file - how can I use that to install the system later? How can I make this iso file really useful - to use it later?

(I'm need that fast as can)

I'll be glad for any help, Thanks, Noam

What you really need to do, is to learn how to use kickstart that way you will created an ISO that way you can create a iso file that will be able to install with all packages you use, that wy you only need to have a copy of your home folder.

Hope this help.
