From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.08 [en] (X11; I; AIX 4.3)

Description of problem:
There is no switch for select single packages during the installation dialog.
Only groups and the non default group rpms can select for the (CD) installation.

After the installation the %packages in anaconda-ks.cfg is the base for the
kickstart file for me.
redhat-config-kickstart knows only the packages groups!

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the system interactiv

This is intentional, going through a list of 1500 packages is not really very
sane and we'd rather get to where the packages that people care about are
selectable via the more usable interface.

Realize that this "intentional" design choice is a choice that many others do
not agree with.  I'd be very careful dismissing feedback from your customers.

FYI, this is a feature we've had in the past....

IMHO. Why not give fine grain control to those who need it and user friendly
seutp as the default?  The user friendly groups is nice (for some people), but
gives up lots of control.
