Sharepoint 2007 site template

hi guys,

I'm creating a site template which will be used to create sites for IT Projects.  The template will contain a number of custom fields and some document libraries.

I've created a site template, and I can create new sites based on this template.  What I'm trying to do now is customize the default page using a page content type.  I need to show some custom fields on the page when a new site is created - such as Project Manager, Project Scope etc.

I've created a Page Content Type containing my custom fields and an associated page layout .  I can create new pages based on this content type, which works well.

Now I basically need to combine these two to create a site template, which I can create new sites from, and have my custom page layout as the home page on the new site.

hope this makes sense..
cheers

in the template, can you not set the customized page to your default home page?

Figured it out.. all I needed to do was go to Site Settings -> Look and Feel, and set my new aspx page as the "Welcome Page" on my site template..
I was trying to do this using 'set homepage' in SP designer but it would not allow me for this page..
