[K12OSN] RH 7.3 Kickstart installation

Hi All,

I'm upgrading all of my servers in the next few weeks and thought I'd set up
a kickstart installation. I've done a quick default installation file and
would like some input on what others are doing as far as partitions,
packages etc. Any suggestions as how to "trim the fat" beyond the obvious
would be appreciated.

These servers are used as the primary servers at each school. Primarily
win9x clients.

I had to install the mkkickstart rpm from 7.2 because it's not on the 7.3
