    I think your confused. You can sell CD's DVD's, but the license is GPL. You don't own the works, and don't have the rights to the works.

    That is what the GPL is about, it is not against making money, you can get
    money for your effort like support or providing the specialised distro
    (which is also work and some kind of support), the software itself remains
    of course free (you can also charge a fee for providing it, but that is not
    selling it, since you do not own it), which means you cannot limit the right
    of the person who gets it to change it or redistribute it further.

    here is a nice article (not exactly what you are planning but worth reading
    it)

    Have a look at the GPL license itself and you'll have your answer for GPL
    content in your appliance. If there is non-GPL content, you'll have to
    refer to those licenses as well to see what is and isn't allowed.
