Ah, ok.  I will have a look what needs to be done for this.  Thanks!

Isn’t rinse already doing the heavy lifting in donwloading all specified
packages?  Createrepo then creates the metadata for a directory full of
existing RPMs:

Yes, I already have a customized menu.

I was planning to copy my config space to a temporary directory, remove
the unneeded files and then reference this temporary copy when building
the CD image.  I’m scripting the CD build process, so there would be
possibility to do this.  But it looks simpler to go for one CD including
everything so there is no need to mess around with a temporary copy.

Thanks for your help!
