Re: customized nfs install



I'm booting from floppy and do nfs install...
linux dd ks=nfs:192.168.1.1:/img/IMG/ks.cfg
ksdevice=eth0

The iso is the one from de distribution, mounted
through loopback and having one rpm replaced and
hdlist regenerated. Then I create the iso...

What I'm interested in, is how can I replace an
existing   package with a newer one right at the
install without having later to run an up2date.

Thx,
Gabriel
