Just to follow up on this a bit, rBuilder
(http://www.rpath.com/rbuilder/) is a tool for doing _exactly_ what
you want. If you're not worried about other people seeing the distro
you create and the licenses are clear on everything you want to
include, you can do it for free on the website given above. If you
want it hidden from public view or want to do it at your own site,
you'll have to give the rPath people a call.
When smithj in #trilug made a distro for me, he did it in under 20
minutes. The "cooking" of the .iso files for the installable version
and the liveCD took a few more minutes, but the whole process of
making the distro was still faster than the install process for
several popular distros I could think of.
