comment Deploy Jetty as port 80 daemon on Linux
Thanks guys. Both answers were helpful to the task. I gave the solution to @Redmumba since the daemonize part wasn't mentioned in the links above.

Thanks. I added this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local: /sbin/iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080 and it forwards all external port 80 traffic to my Jetty daemon on port 8080.

comment CentOS 5.5 Install Customization
Thanks. Now that I've got a setup that I'm mostly happy with, I'll look into using it to configure kickstart.

comment CentOS 5.5 Install Customization
I had the most success with this process: 1. Uncheck all of the default package groups (e.g., "Desktop - GNOME"), 2. Choose "Customize now", 3. Add all packages you want to install but never remove anything that is already checked.

comment CentOS 5.5 Install Customization
Thanks, Aaron. It seems that the rule-of-thumb must be to never remove, only add packages. And Customize later since during install doesn't seem to work consistently. My target install is somewhere between Server-GUI and Desktop-Gnome. Do you know if you have to pick one of the default install groups?
