E.g.,

    # Post section:  no chroot
        %post --nochroot
    # cd to new root (/)
        cd /mnt/sysimage
        # copy file from root of installation tree to new install
        cp /mnt/source/file /mnt/sysimage/file

        # Post section:  chroot (/mnt/sysimage)
        %post
        # cd to new root (/)
        cd /
    # do commands under chroot
    (blah)...

You already know Red Hat as the entity dedicated to 100%
no-IP-strings-attached, community software development.
But do you know where CIOs rate Red Hat versus other
software and services firms for their own, direct needs? 
It's no comparison:  http://www.redhat.com/promo/vendor/
