So how can you do an install based on all the latest?

Can I create a /centos/install/i386 directory structure where I first 
rsync over the /centos/os/i386, then the /centos/update/i386, and then 
keep it current from both from the Centos mirrors?

I would guess I would have to run createrepo myself as neither the base 
nor the update repodata would be right for the combined directory.  I 
have quite a few installs to do still this week.  I had been holding off 
on some builds, waiting for 5.2 to do them 'clean'.
