Disk Utility - Controlling the icon view and colors of a disk image

Advertisement

Hello
  I want to make a disk image that contains a drag-installer for my little app. I have a background image created for it with an arrow and I also put an alias of my Applications folder in it.
  When I closed the disk image and copied it to another computer to open and test it, it was in icon view, but the icons were much smaller and the background image was ignored completely. Also, the left "toolbar" was visible, and I do nto want that to be visible.
  How can I control these items so that they appear the way I want them to when the disk image is mounted?
Thanks
