Justin,

Have you taken a look at Umigumi (http://umigumi.org/)? Here's a blurb 
from their web site:

"Umigumi is a Free Software published under the General Public License 
which simplifies the installation and the distribution of Operating 
System installers on Flash memory cards."

"Umigumi has been originally developped by the OpenBrick community for 
the OpenBrick open embedded platform. Umigumi is now available for all 
platforms with the goal to accelerate the distribution of Free Software 
based appliances both for business (router, firewall, VPN, NAS, etc.) 
and home (multimedia, security, home gateway, etc.)."

"Umigumi is currently available for Mandrake and Debian GNU/Linux. 
Windows and Mac OS X ports are expected soon." [don't hold your breath 
waiting for Windows or Mac ports].
