This is something I have been missing since I worked with AIX several years ago. It's a short and effective script cloning an iso file appending data from the server and creating af new iso _including_ data from the server. This would be really usefull when moving around with small servers(virtual/physical) of which there are a lot. You are "in the air" at once after installation.  Here it comes(the script works right out of the box in FreeBSD but with a few correction it should be used with several distributions):
