The istall all option in the initial redhat installation sequence
does NOT install all the packages on the CD (have no idea why). RH 6.1.
rpm -Uvh --force *.rpm --nodeps
that will install everything on the disk.
The problem with doing this is that some packages have installation
scripts built into them that require other packages to be installed
before they will run correctly.
