Rebuild Redhat Install CD's with new Packages

Hey all,

I was wondering if I have a certain system that I want to install on multiple machines that uses a.rpm, b.rpm and c.rpm and these are not currently on the CD, can I compile a new set of install CD's with these packages and other selected Redhat packages.

IE, I am looking to build an email gateway with Redhat, a spam filter and preconfigured sendmail files.

Is this possible?

Thanks,

Mike

Yes it's possible - in fact that's exactly what Whitebox, CentOS and the other Redhat clones have done. Look here:

http://www.whiteboxlinux.org/howto.html

If that's too complex, you can mount one of the isos:

mkdir /mnt/iso
mount -o loop /root/CD1.iso /mnt/cdrom

Copy the /mnt/cdrom directory somewhere else, and then add additional isos as necesary. You then mkisofs, and reburn provided the image remains smaller than a CD onto which you intend to burn it. Note that this will mess up things like the 'integrity check', but if you follow through the howto above, you could go to all the trouble of recreating the correct checksums as well.
