Description of problem:
The anaconda installer crashes with python error outputs when trying to install packages selected in a kickstart file read over NFS.
The kickstart file is personnalised to suit the system install needs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot with   linux ks=nfs:server:/path/to/kickstart/
2.anaconda crashes and ask if we want to make an output on a floppy drive
3.reboot (no other thing to do)

Actual Results:  installation fails, output :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1160, in ?
    intf.run(id, dispatch)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 447, in run
    (step, args) = dispatch.currentStep()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 279, in currentStep
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 174, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 207, in readPackages
    id.instClass.setGroupSelection(grpset, intf)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py", line 1559, in setGroupSelection
    pkgs = grpset.hdrlist.pkgnames[name]
KeyError: ''

Expected Results:  installation runs automatically

Additional info:

kickstart file personnalised with lines like thoses for packages selection (short example):
