rpm question

My suggestion is you create a script that does install these rpm in a 
directory that has also these rpm's. Then simply make a spec file that 
runs those scripts. See 
http://www.logiqwest.com/TechnicalPapers/rpmScriptInstall.html which 
documents how to make a spec file without a build and then use the 
example at the end where I install the cron's to call your script.  Hope 
it helps.
