Customizing dynebolic can be done, and it's quite well
documented. See


for a nice article about making a customized dynebolic CD.

Basically, the CD iso contains a squashfs compressed
filesystem which you can "explode" into a real filesystem,
make changes to it, then "implode" it back into a bootable
iso image. Pretty cool.

The instructions in the article referenced above worked
for me more than once (I use dynebolic to facilitate the
distribution and presentation of some custom linux audio
software I nowadays develop.)
