“One of the things which has always ticked me off is making a clean Fedora install, and then having hundreds of megs of patches to download the first time ‘yum update’ is run. However, building a patched install dvd is actually pretty simple.”
Creating a Patched Fedora Core 5 Install DVD

This looks very flexible, not only could you get Fedora installed with all the patches, but also any software you want. I suppose this might be possible using the slipstream method with Windows CDs, but not easily since most Windows software bundled with it’s own incompatible installer. If you already know how to make RPM packages for Fedora (which isn’t hard), then with these instructions it should be a pieace of cake to add to the default installed software.
Simple also has different meaning!!!
“# mkisofs -R -J -T -v -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table
-V “Fedora Core 5 (Patched.0406)” -b isolinux/isolinux.bin
-c isolinux/boot.cat -x “lost+found” -o FC5-i386-dvd-patched.iso i386
# /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/implantisomd5 FC5-i386-dvd-patched.iso”
At loss of words… O_O
