The best way to install on a new computer is using the installer which will do the lifting.

mkinitrd, dd and all of the other programs have usage for certain tasks. Installation duplication is not really something that I would attempt.

There are other tools which allow you to make customized installation media which are part of the distribution. You might investigate these programs to fulfill your interest in reducing the installation followed by massive updates if the released media for Fedora 7 was used.

You could also save the downloaded rpms from previous installations and make local repos to reduce repeated downloading the updates.

I doubt these programs are defective. They are not really designed for some of the creative usages which you are attempting to do.
