stuff on top of that so should be able to include this .ks and add a few pacakges and what

I agree - it's generally easier to install packages than to remove them and all their
Isn't acpid necessary to get VMs to reboot and shut off properly?
Maybe we could have a generic kickstart for all VM images and then %include it in all the
vendor-specific (e.g., EC2) kickstarts, which contain the bits that aren't portable
