the general steps to rebrand a distro



  just to make sure i understand one of the phases of building
a custom distro, i'm reading an archive posting that goes thru
the steps in detail, but in general, if i want to rebrand a
distro, as in removing all references to red hat, replacing
logos and so on, is this the general process:

1) install anaconda.src.rpm
2) hack the source/spec files, replace RH references with
   my own
3) build a new anaconda.i386.rpm from the result
4) place this new RPM in the build tree, where it will be 
   used as the new installer

  i guess the question is, when i run "buildinstall", does it
use the version of anaconda.i386.rpm it finds in the build tree
i've constructed?
