using mock like debootstrap

for a deployment of virtual machines I need a complete root tree.
To get it I use mock --init --root=fedora-9-i386 (or any other release)

That works a little like debootstrap.

But what do I need to get my machine _really_ working (I already
installed yum, sshd and some tools)? 
For example I am missing /etc/shadow and cannot use passwd to set up a
root password.

So is there some kind of base packages list?
