This is one piece missing, documentation wise: for example, 
what if one wants to replace some packages with others (sendmail with postfix)
or their updated versions,  ie stuff which doesn't exist in the standard RH
CDs? If I say "don't install sendmail" fetchmail install from RH cd will fail,
won't it? Since it finds missing packages. Even if later I plan to say "install
latest postfix rpm from slinky iso.
Ditto for Abiword: thanks to your work there are now gtk only Abiword 2 rpms,
but one must put them on the slinky iso.

This is the second piece missing: the  makedisk.sh script copies into
a boot floppy what is in the filesystem directory, but how do you build *that*?
With the latest slinky?
