not on RHL 9 per se, yet, that I know of, but the cAos
project, http://www.caosity.org/ has a 'work-in-progress'
working arbitrary packageset production script for RHL 8.  I
demonstrated the .iso result of that script, at the Central OH
LUG meeting a few hours ago.   http://www.colug.net/presentations/
 July 03 meeting entry

It worked on all CD booting units present at the meeting but
one; it caused a hard lockup of a current version SuSE box in
a VMWare execution environment.  It locks up my older AMD
processor (that same unit had trouble with some other RH
provided kernel/anaconda combinations as well), but works on
all Intel test units.

It would/should work with RHL 9 as well, as there is no
anaconda dependency, no comps dependency; two chaages --
dropping in a proper kernel, and updateing the RPMs archive
for its chrooted install

It does depend on getting a clean cloop modules build, and I 
have not tested that against the RHL 9 kernel yet.  Please 
contact me off list, as this is out of scope of Anaconda, if
