RE: RH9 custom installation CD - some basic questions

1. I made a one CD distro and did not use splitdistro and it worked
3. Yes, just put all the answers in a ks.cfg file and anaconda will install
with no user interaction.

Subject: RH9 custom installation CD - some basic questions

We need to create a CD that will include a minimal Redhat 9 installation and
the installation of our software product, so that all one will have to do is
boot a new machine with the CD and the RH9 and our product will be
automatically installed.
I have gone through the archives and here's what I understand. Please
correct me if I'm wrong.
Regarding the first part (automatic minimal installation of RH9), I have 2
1. I can create a Kickstart installation, e.g. following Brett Schwarz's
article - http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6473. By the way, is
there an update of this article for RH9?
2. I can create an installation CD using buildinstall, e.g. following Luigi
Bitonti's article -
Now, from what I understand, I can use either one. Right? What are the
arguments for each option?
Regarding the second part (automatic installation of our product too), is
the situation any different?
And some more questions:
1. According to Luigi Bitonti's article, I'm supposed to use splitdistro.
But the idea was to have only 1 CD. So, can I simple use the 1st CD, and
ignore the rest?
2. Do the 2 options mutually exclude each other, or is there a situation in
which I'll combine them?
3. I don't intend this CD to be used by a power user, so I want everything
to be automatic. I don't want the user to have to answer questions. Does it
mean that I have to create a kickstart installation CD (in order for all the
questions to be answered in advance)?
