Custom package installation using kickstart

Hi there,

I've started playing around with Linux a few days back, as part of my intenship. I was wondering if there is anyway I can install custom packages (non RPM packages...say like Oracle) as a part of Kickstart. My machines are running RHEL 4.

Thanks a lot Smilie
