Good question.  I'm mixing my terms up.  What I want is to reproduce 
what is typically downloaded from off the Internet.  With that said I 
want to create an CD install image.  I need to be able to change the way 
the files are compressed.

I guess I could work at it from the other direction.  I could take a 
pre-built image, unpack the rpms and then compress them with my 
modifications.  Yes I think that is a better way of doing it.
