Better even than having the installer image, just package up a script

whatever works. The goal here is to give people a better solution than
just a live yum upgrade, when they feel they can't use the iso based
images directly. People without dvd burners, remote/headless.

In fact a UI'd script would be very useful, so you can give people a
configuration dialog and ask them to turn on optional things like vnc
support if they want it.
