Ok ... look at it this way. You want an Everything install that you
are going to do on 200 desktops. That sounds like a job for kickstart.
So my plan of action would be to use system-config-kickstart, create a
kickstart with the packages I wanted (all languages and %everything or
a glob) and then either kickstart the boxes from the network or create
a boot cdrom that has as its default action to run your laboratories
Fedora Core 5 install.

That way you can also add in any packages that FC5 does not ship with
or point stuff to extras etc.
