David, I rebuild with the included anaconda every respin :)

Here is the latest and greatest build script I used for making a 4.1Beta
set of ISOs.


Here is my current i386 rpmmacros:


obviously, you will need to edit the paths and such ... build.sh needs
to be run as root (really, the only part that has to be done as root is
the buildinstall) ... and all the rpmmacros need to be set for root too.
It will give you the programs and switches and order that are run for
the main ISOs though
