yum stuff

note to self

When creating yum repositories with RHEL5 installation media,
use createrepo -g with the comps-*.xml files inside {Server, Cluster, ClusterStorage, VT}/repodata directories.

createrepo -g will add the necessary meta-data on to the repo, necessary for yum group functions to work properly.

Eg. yum grouplist, yum groupinstall

Good one. Just ran in to this myself a couple of days ago.
