In the first boot configuration script, it has these instructions to
re-run the first boot script.  This will give you all the setup options
that you configured during the first boot after installation.

Hope this helps.

Also make sure first boot is set to run in runlevel 5

chkconfig --level 5 firstboot on


#!/bin/sh
# firstboot:         Starts the firstboot druid if it hasn't been run
before
#
# chkconfig: 35 95 95

# description:       Firstboot is a druid style program that runs on the
first time \
#                    a machine is booted after install.  It checks for
the existence \
#                    of an /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file.  If it doesn't
find the file, \
#                    then the firstboot program needs to run.  If it
