Have fedora core 5, and running installs via nfs across the network.  Would like to create a cd that will boot up and automotically start installing using the kickstart file on the cd.  

Also as part of the post configuration  i would like it to run a script that runs the flash installer from the cd and installs its self to the browsers. Or even trun this script into an rpm that runs. as part of the install.  

Trying to make it so when ever I install a Fedora Core 5 desktop it automatically loads java, adobe reader and flash player all for firefox so the box is ready to go.
