Sub_title: Howto make a pet from several things

The problem being solved:
You want to be able to share something that needs:

I am assuming that you are doing this for a friend who doesn't have the time or knowledge to gather the things together. You have to be sure to deal with any license issues. Don't remove things like GPL notices.

Step 1:
Reboot your computer from live CD with no save file. ie: make sure there is none with either pfix=ram or by selecting 0 for none

Step 2:
Install all the things needed
Use the package manager, click on the *.deb you found, drag the library from some memory stick and basically just get those files all in.

Step 3:
Test that it works without a flaw

Step 4:
Ooops you forgot libthingstuff.so.9
Go back to step 2 to put that in.

Step 5:
Shut down and make a new save file with some obvious name.

Step 6:
Reboot back in your normal system.

Step 7:
Mount the save file by clicking on it.

Step 8:
Make a directory like mycombination-0.0

Step 9:
Drag and drop the directories from the save file into mycombination-0.0

Step 10:
Go into mycombination-0.0 and remove things like the "choices" directory that are not part of what you really want to install.

Step 11:
Do the usual dir2pet

Step 12:
Boot again from CD with no save file

Step 13:
Install the pet and test that it all works.

Step 14:
Test it again.

Advantages of this method:
1-The save file is a record of all the things you had to put in to get it to work.
2-You aren't changing your main system

Disadvantages of this method:
1-You have to be sure to remove all the settings and the like.
2-You are hiding all the dependencies and mixing things together
