I've attached my wbel3-minimum file here (copy/paste from a Windows based
pc, you might want to convert it first). It might be possible to reduce it
further - first of all I'd just like to get a server ip and running inside
the vserver environment - than I can play around with reducing the number of
needed RPM's afterwards ;-)

They are being read from /home/wbel3 - I've copied all RPM packages into
that dir... "rpm -k *.rpm" doesn't show any packages as damaged.
I'm using a modified install-xxxx script - which has been modified io read
the wbel3-minimum list, and grab the RPMs from the dir in the /home folder,
instead of using the CD-Rom drive....
I don't know if the linuxconf gui is better to handle this stuff..
