hi friends
after weeks of work finally i collected all the pieces and it is time to put together, My college project was to create a customized live cd with Bioinformatics tools and they also want me to edit the bootsplash backgrounds etc ,

in order to accomplish this i have created two rpms generic-logos , desktop-wallpapers and i set the conflict parameters with the default ones(fedora logos,desktop-backgrounds-basic)

now i have to specify in my kickstart file not to use the default packages but include what i have created , if i simply specify mine in ks file it creates a conflict , how do i avoid this , i did a bit googling with no results friends kindly help out

i am including my ks files kindly point out where to edit
