Take a look at Revisor.

Create a kickstart file (with system-config-kickstart) which you think 
has the best settings and packages, then (on the command-line) specify 
"--kickstart-include" and "--kickstart-default", or check the 
appropriate boxes in the GUI.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me off-list.
