Kickstart and RPM's

I was wondering...If I choose to install an RPM in a kickstart setup, do I need to make the RPM especially for the install? Or can I use an "off the shelf" rpm (one I could download an install manually)?

Thanks in advance.

There's nothing special about the supplied RPMs - you should be able to use any RPM built for the distribution.
