Hi Mohit open terminal and type

$ cd /etc/apt/ "PRESS ENTER"
$ sudo gedit sources.list

Now add following lines to sources list

# Remastersys
# deb Index of /remastersys/repository karmic/

save and close file.
Again open terminal and type,

$ sudo apt-get install update
$ sudo apt-get install remastersys

To make a installable OS type
$ sudo remastersys dist

this will create a installable custom.iso in your home folder
burn on disk and your OS is ready.

If you have installed applications on your system by

"sudo apt-get install"

then applications will be available in your customised distro but *.deb files will be not. To take backup of all *.deb files open terminal and type

$ cd /var/cache/apt/archives/

then type
$ sudo cp *.deb (Specify folder destination)

burn them on disk or save on HDD and keep it as backup.
Happy Computing.
