Install McAfee after kickstart

I'm looking for a way to automatically install uvscan as part of the kickstart process. I'd like to be able to kick a box and have McAfee installed once the kick is done, instead of doing it manually. I'm running RHEL 5 & 6, and we do not have an ePo server available in case that makes a difference. Thanks.

Add a %post section to your kickstart file.

# Change directory to where you have the uvscan.tar.gz file
mkdir uvscan
if [ -f uvscan.tar.gz ]; then
   gzip -d -v uvscan.tar.gz
cd uvscan
tar xf ../uvscan.tar
./install-uvscan -y
cd ..
That should get you pointed in the correct direction.
