If you just run the script on a base CD install, it seems that it will be larger than 700 meg. That is not a problem, if you are recreating a DVD ISO. remastersys seems to not have as good of compression. The biggest quirk I found, is that when you reboot your new ISO, it will log you in as a user named Ubuntu. When you ran: remastersys backup filename.iso that re-creates the users and installed apps from your original install. If you click on the Install icon, it will prompt you for a password, that seems to not exist. Solution: log out, and then log back in as your initial user that you created (the Ubuntu 'sort of root' user). When you run Install from there, you will be prompted for the 'sort of root' password, it will then run.
