Question Creating an automated installation script

Is it possible create some kind of custom shell scripting for the slackware install disks to where it will install the custom packages we need to install on the computers. Basicly, I'm trying to create an automatic installation script for the systems we have.

If anyone has any suggestions on this, or where to get some information for it, I'd love to hear it.

Just have a look at the tagfile in each diskset to get an idea of how it works. It wouldn't be that difficult to add a custom diskset.

I would actually like a 'fire and forget' installation which will partition, format, and install the packages with out user intervention out side of restarting computer.
