How does it work? Do I copy all the rpm's I want to use to the CentOS
folder, and then run createrepo on that folder?

	Yes, but first, you need to test dependencies in order to have
"ALL REQUIRED" packages ;)

	After that, you can remove not needed ones. Usually one way to do
that is to try installing to a different folder, not your system so you
can keep rpm complaining of missing dependencies... and when everything is
fine, then you can "createrepo" and master a custom cd.

	Are you using CentOS 5?

This is a bit above me.

I use SME 7.3 (which is built on CentOS 4.6) as inhouse production server, and then I have my (soon to colocate) test server, which currently runs CentOS 5.1 64.
How would I test an rpm on an already running system?

What I have done till now, is todo a base install, and then create only use the files installed (as per /installation.log) in my new CD. There's still quite a few programs that I don't need and could probably delete them from the CentOS folder on the CD, but I still need to figure out how these file are installed. I saw the repodata/comps.xml file, but it's LONG, and have a lot of different languages, not some something I can take on right now. It's almost easier to run something like "yum remove {package-name} from the kickstart file
