Description of problem:
20050902's rawhide was uninstallable because vesamodes is gone, but something python module used by anaconda (haven't been able to figure out exactly what) still needs the file, and raises an exception when it can't find it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the installer

Actual Results:  Exception about missing rhpxl (sorry, I didn't take note of the exact pathnames becuase they looked easy to memorize, but now I can't remember what they were ;-(

Expected Results:  No such exception
