Can anyone offer any advice on "rolling my own" OS for a turnkey
asterisk installation ?.

I want to be able to give my IT staff a system where in case of an
emergency, all I need to do is to get the techs to just drop a cd in,
and reboot. The rest takes care of itself.  Our current system uses
curl for realtime config, so all critical data is retrieved from a

I need to have some custom changes to the .conf files and some .c
programs.  I am thiniking of building asterisk as a static file, but
can I do that with libpri and dahdi-linux / dahdi-tools ?

Basically, I want to do an asteriskNow / PBXinaflash etc , but with my
own stuff (config files etc).

I've got as far as a custom kickstart file for centos / fedora, but I
need all the development files because I still have to compile.
