When we generate the cdrom, we remove the old home.dm and copy
exported_home.dm to home.dm. The easiest thing for you to do is to
modify the perl script.

Open up bin/script/exportcol.pl in an editor.

Look for the following lines:
# now change the home.dm macro file to a simple version
my $newmacrodir = &util::filename_cat ($gsdldir, "macros");
my $exporthome = &util::filename_cat ($newmacrodir, "exported_home.dm");
my $oldhome = &util::filename_cat ($newmacrodir, "home.dm");
if (-e $exporthome) {
&util::mv($exporthome, $oldhome);

Put # in front of the two util lines:
#&util::mv($exporthome, $oldhome);

Then reexport. You should get your modifed home page showing up.
