    okay, i want to rebundle, or create my own .dmg files with pictures.
    here is an example from toast 7. i want to make the following:
    1. add programs
    2. add background picture
    3. save to whole thing as a .dmg file with a custom icon

    how do i do this.

    mod, if this belongs in the programming section, sorry, please move.

    Thanks

    I did a quick Google search and found this:

    Goes step by step through creating and beautifying a DMG (which is really just sort of a Finder folder stored in a disk image).

    Cant you just set up a folder like that then create a dmg from within that folder? I thought all the settings were contained within a folder. At least thats what it looks like whenever I use my Mac HD on my PC.

    :EDIT: Oh.. thats what the link you provided says. Oops should have read that first :D
