Remaster ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala with remastersys

Previously some there was some problem for remastering Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic koala). Karmic Koala is using Grub 2, remastersys is designed for grub 1. Now Remastersys is redesigned for ubuntu 9.10 with grub 2 and it is working. you need Remastersys version 2.0.13-1 or higher.
All other options are just like previous versions. see here

how to install latest version remastersys in ubuntu 9.10
add the following repository to your apt source by editing /etc/apt/sources.list or
add repository using System-->Administration-->Synaptic package Manager --> Settings -->Repositories-->Third-party-software-->Add

deb karmic/

$sudo apt-get update
$sudo apt-get install remastersys (or use synaptic)

I have created a Ubuntu 9.10 Live CD with Multimedia Support, java, LAMP server, GCC and lot more.......

the options for GRUB is missing from the .conf file, is there some way to use grub?

You need to edit the file /etc/grub.d/40_custom, since grub2 no more uses the file /boot/grub/menu.lst

The options and setup is different for grub2, have a look here for instructions to grub2:
