The image is just a flat directory with updated python files.  You'll
want all of the files off of the image.  You can leave out the
lost+found directory ;)

No, RHupdates doesn't affect packages at all.  The only way package
information is even known about is by reading the comps file and hdlist,
so there'd then have to be some sort of additional structure to add in
and then do conflict resolution as to which package wins when there are
multiple copies of the same package name with different versions and
other ugliness like that.

anaconda automagically detects that you're installing on an SMP system
and installs both the smp and up kernels, setting the smp kernel as the
default.
