If I were you, I would recommend kickstart. You don't have to create your own DVD or CD. You create a config script, which you already have as a baseline in /root/ called anaconda.cfg

There is a pretty good Kickstart GUI configuration utility available in RHEL. See /usr/sbin/system-config-kickstart. You may have to install it on your system as it is an optional package.

The Satellite package that RedHat sells is fantastic for kickstarting and managing RHEL hosts. You can do custom package channels for patch lifecycle management, and also centrally manage configuration files.
