Setting up custom CentOS minimal ISO


Hello,

I am trying to create a bootable CentOS minimal ISO with a few added packages. The machine this is going on will not have internet, I thought about just using kickstart and installing the packages but without internet that is a hard option.

Is there any easy way to do it with instructions.... Maybe a local repo that is called through kickstart i'm not sure, any ideas or help is greatly appreciated.

Why not use the CentOS minimal CD to create a bootable USB stick, dump those extra packages and dependencies on a separate partition and install them after you've ran firstboot?

I think you can use a local repo as in usb or some local lan for kickstart.

I thought of those ideas I just need to give an ISO to a few people and have them install it, hopefully with the packages needed already installed, I know in kickstart you can call an RPM and run commands like RPM -i (package name)... Where would I need to store them to be able to call them from kickstart on install?
