I'm working on making the jump from SL5 to 7 (skipped over 6).  For
SL5 I have a nice shell script that unpacks the official DVD iso,

custom syslinux config and kickstart files, and finally builds a
resultant bootable respun iso image.

network dependent.  I want everything to end up right on the install
DVD for easy off-line installation.  My existing setup has some
workarounds and kludges to make it work, and would prefer to attempt
to use the modern, accepted method for doing this. Especially for the
EFI booting.

Any help or directional pointing is much appreciated.  Pat, is the
