No, because it doesn't install the system how I want it.

I prefer LVM over partitions. The only reason I use partitions is if
I'm forced to (like RHEL 2.1). LVM is much more flexible.

What would be great is to be able to "re-master" the DSA cd with a
customized kickstart file, so we can install all of our systems from
DSA, but have them customized for our site. We're a pretty small linux
shop (5 servers) so PXE boot is a bit overboard, but a customized
installation CD would be more convenient.
