I'm releasing a revised version of the nicOS-Remaster Options tool.

Change log:

1. The previous version (as is the case with Puppy's builtin tool) copies the /root, /etc and /var directories to /tmp of the running file system. The result is that RAM or savefile space will be occupied by the contents of these folders even if you have chosen another working partition. This revised version addresses this issue. Your chosen partition will now handle the full remastered process (unless you choose the RAM option). Note that you can choose a partition with a non-linux filesystem (like ntfs and FAT) as your working partition.
2. The compression options have changed.
3. Some other minor stuff.

Attached to first post.

I've reworked the ISO section of the Revised Options version to make it more compact and user friendly. Try it instead. Added to opening post, replacing the previous one. The whole remaster process now comprises of 5 (4 if you only remaster the base sfs) steps, ie:
1. Choose your working partition
2. Choose to make an iso or only remaster the base sfs
3. Choose to copy files from the distribution's live-cd or iso (only for iso making).
4. Choose the compression method
5. Choose to save hardware settings (customise) or not and opportunity to make final changes.

I've made a few very small changes. This will be the last upload (well, until something significantly changes in future). Attached to first post.
