Have installed RH 7.3 on pentium 4.
Want to install on 7 other PCs.
Dont need a lot just gnome and networking. Going to mount the rest of
the stuff with NFS or copy it onto /opt somehow. I did actually use
the valhalla isos and applied the updates with rpm -F (not too much
bother with dependencies).

Want to do an automated install. Think that I should be able to put
rpms on one or at most 2 cds. Any suggestions on how to identify which
updates are needed where to copy them and what to put in the ks file?

Thanks in Advance
