    159 From the manual installation procedure to customize the VM, we learned that it is not efficient to manually install `XORP` on multiple VMs. An alternative approach is to create a custom image of `Ubuntu 12.04 LTS` with `XORP` pre-installed, and save this custom image for future usage. You can create InstaGENI custom images via either JACKS or with Omni, details can be found at [http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/HowTo/ManageCustomImagesInstaGENI ManageCustomImageInstaGENI].

    161 Here we use Flack to create InstaGENI custom image of `Ubuntu 12.04` that has `XORP` pre-installed.
    162 
    163 In Flack, for the same VM that we have just installed `xorp`, go to it's node property (i.e., clicking [[Image(GENIExperimenter/Tutorials/SystematicExprCaseStudy/InstallSoftware:info.jpg)]]), and click the button ''' ''Create Image'' '''.
