Description of problem:
The Redhat installer allowed the selection if individual packages. 
Thus, a normal user would install default groups, but a power 
user/system administrator would install only the minimal and then 
refine the selection by choosing individual packages.The "good" 
behaviour would show in the individual packages screen the packages 
selected at the previous (group selection) screen, and then allow to

and let the installer add the required libraries and other

This was not rewritten intentionally after a rewrite of some of the
backend package handling code.   The installer will get you a basic
system up and running after which you can tweak the full package list
as you want to.   Unfortunately, the bit to get the invididual package
selection in redhat-config-packages didn't quite happen this time
around, hopefully for next time.
