If I understand correctly Paul is looking for how to make his own respin, 
because he is tired of waiting for A) his fresh installs to pull the huge 
update set every time, and B) for the unity folks to make an _updated_ spin of F9.
Perhaps you would work with Bill Cody a bit to update the RedHat-CD-HOWTO[1], 
or a new bit of documentation up on fedoraunity[3], using info pointed to by 
one of my emails the other day[2].

Of course the alternative would include having a USB hard drive with a mirror 
of fedora/linux/updates/9/<arch> on it, but that means you still have to 
install the old package and then wait while the system figures out how to 
update to the new package.
