how ro select all packages in Kickstart?

I did a quick search on kickstart and couldn't find anything on this.

I am currently running RHEL 4 update 7 in my environment. Apparently all of the packages wasn't listed in the kickstart configuration gui tool (system-config-kickstart).

What is the correct syntax to select all packages to install on the kickstart file?

I remember it was something like @all or @everything. Can someone please tell me?

For RHEL 5, it is * right?

Thanks much for your help!!!

But I already knew that...

I was just wondering instead of listing out all of the packages... can we use some wildcard or command to install all of the packages?

Have you tried with * for all packages? Naming 12 names is not much at all.
