I think what you need is more along the lines of what's needed to
create a live cd, so try googling that thread. Take your .iso and mount
it, then copy the image over onto your hd in a specific directory
eg /usr/local/remaster. Make your changes and then recreate the .iso
file. I'm pretty sure that you'll need to chroot so that
your /usr/local/remaster directory is the root for your cd image. This
is why I suggest you look up that thread and see how it needs to be
done. IIRC opensuse had the instructions on compiling a live CD so you
might want to try there first.
