i'm new, so i'm a bit lost:

why give up anaconda?  can't you just repackage the data so it gives you a 
better "lightweight install"?

and, why not just snag the RULE-compliant RPMs from RH or fedora, mix in 
your mini-kde RPMS, and build a custom yum repository for RULE?

(by RULE-compliant, i mean, the useful RPMs that aren't bloatware...)
