Deployment Scripting or Customized Distro CD

I’m running OpenSuse 11.0 with KDE 3.5. I’m looking to basically customize the desktop interface options to be consistent across a number of computers (like desktop wallpaper, customized menu items, icons on the desktop layed out in a particular way, etc…). So I don’t have a need to compile a distro that is really any different than what OpenSuse 11.0 currently offers. I just want to avoid having to touch each system individually when I roll them out. I guess I’m just looking for some guidance on where to start or if there are any tutorials or articles on this specific kind of thing. ?

I humbly thank you in advance for any help you can provide. :shame:

My background is initially networking and support, and I’m a certified developer in Lotus Dominio and other Web based languages (very minimal C experience, but I can manage to follow other logic and programming concepts fairly well).

I believe you could look into AutoYast.
