Description of problem:
Whenever I use a kickstart script to load FC4, anaconda will crash if the script contains any packages that are deselected ( e.g. -gaim ).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.include a deselected package in the ks.cfg scrpt ( -gaim )
2.start install with linux ks=floppy
3.install crashes everytime
4.attempted on 2 seperate computers with same results.

Actual Results:  install crashed with failed kickstart install message.

Expected Results:  anaconda should have installed all packages selected.

Additional info:

I have tried this on 2 seperate computers. using different scripts, cdrom, ftp, hardisk installs, all with the same results.
The scripts run fine if I remove all references to removing individual packages.
anacrondump.tx file available.
