Simple, reliable way to create OS X user accounts... - ...mix with AutoDMG and you've got a potent combo. :)

Almost Perfect… - For people creating images (NetBoot, NetRestore, NetInstall, Deploy Studio, Casper, etc.), this is a really handy tool. And I’m not aware of anything better out there. However, there are a few features that would make it even better. Ability to Save Configuration It would be nice to not have to start over again, if you just want to slightly “tweak” the last installer package. Ability to Create Home Folder It would be nice to have the option to create the home folder at package run time, instead of having to go through the first login. Ability to Put Files Into Home Folder It would be nice to be able to put files into specified locations within the home folder. For example, preference files into the ~/Library/Preferences/ folder, or files on the desktop, or applications into the ~/Applications folder. (The user’s application folder, not the system one), etc.
