Experts-

I'm new to building RPMs.  I have an application I can use Installshield to install, but my organization has a need to have it as an automated install.  The feature of Installshield to use an answer file is broken in this version, thus the reason for an RPM.  What I would like to do is install the application on my Red Hat 5.5 platform and then generate a list of all the files that were installed.  I have seen that you can use touch filename, but other posts suggest this may be a problem.  I've also seen you can use Tripwire, but the system I'm installing to is pretty stripped down so I may not be able to install it.  Any suggestions on how to get a list of files installed would be great!  Thank you
