Thank you that is a thought, I was hoping that there was a install flag that tells the installer to keep the rpm when installing. Much like redcarpet has for not clearing the cache.

You can mount the installmedium an copy the rpm´s on the disk with a preinstall-script.

Is there a way to save the rpms that are being installed during autoinstall to the local disk? For example: If I save every rpm I install and I save a special initrd and autoinst.xml saved on the machine I could have a re-install option on the boot menu that a user could re-image his machine if he broke it too badly and could not get remote support.
