Connie,
 I've been working on some code to allow scripted-sets of packages be
updated/installed/removed along with groups via yum.

so ideally you could have a firstboot-like init script that ran a script
to more precisely configure the system. - even neater would be if you
could pull that script from a web server so your users could go  select
additional packages from a cgi somewhere then quickly have the rest of
the items installed.

I know that's not as interactive and therefore probably not what you
want.

but it might be useful.
