Description of problem:
I made a good manual installation, and then used the anaconda-ks.cfg file as the basis for a kickstart file (attached) served via NFS. The kickstart file excludes a number of OpenOffice.org packages. Package selection fails with the following:
The failure is in line 1559 of kickstart.py, in setGroupSelection.
I have tried twice to install via kickstart, with and without VNC, and both times it failed. The failure point is the same, s I doubt it is lack of memory. The manchine has 240 MB.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to installation CD, using options to point to the kickstart file.
Actual Results: Got the error described above.
Expected Results: Sucessful package selection & installation.

The kickstart file
I was able to get a good installation by commenting out (prepending '# ' to each
line) all of the excluded package names (-foo). I was then able to crash the
installation by commenting back in '-slrn'.
