How do you add a package to the BLAG server installation and how do you set the serverblag install image as the default one?

To add a package, you can use either apt or rpm. Via apt:
apt-get install lame
for example, if you wanted to install lame.
You can also do it via rpm and the cdrom:
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
rpm -Uvh lame-3.95.1-1blag.rh9.i386.rpm
I'm not sure what you mean as the default one. You mean default one to boot? If so, you do that by editing (as root):
And set "default=" to your image (counting from 0). So if it's the first one listed in grub, it would be:

I'll split it up in three questions:
1. The company I work for developed a software suite for a client. We need to package this as a RPM and have it installed along with our BLAG installation. How do we add this RPM to the BLAG installation?
2. We will either be using the minimal automated installation or server automated installation of BLAG (http://www.blagblagblag.org/docs/). This package needs to be installed to this installation image. How do we do that?
3. When the guy in the factory puts the CD in the CD-ROM of the machine we are installing to, he must not be prompted for anything, except to remove the CD at the end to restart the machine. As in (2) we will be using either the minimal automated installation or the server automated installation of BLAG and we need to have the installation we decide on to start automatically at boot up from the CD.

It sounds like you want to roll your own version of the distribution, essentially. You can do this by following the steps in this document:
