I would look more closely at RedHat's kickstart facility.  It's fairly
trivial to kickstart a RH box with say, the 2.4.18 kernel, snort, acid,
and postgresql/mysql.

You can add in customized shell scripts as part of the post install.  We
use this to setup the networking scripts, routing tables, ips, and such.
