Automating the install

Once one knows which options one wants on the install while performing a custom install , selecting all the packages manually. Is there anyway to save these install options in a file, on a floppy or somewhere so that the next time one has to reinstall they do not have to manually select all the desired packages, but rather have them read and selected automatically?

there's probably an option somewhere in the redhat install prog where you can save the options to a floppy - i know that suse has that... i'm pretty sure mandy does too. i'd be really surprised if redhat didn't
