What do the kickstart files generated from the first install and second install
look like?
Comment 3 Gregory Bird 2007-04-12 16:33:27 EDT
I can reproduce this 100% of the time with RHEL5 Server and the following steps.

1. Install via NFS mounted sources.
2. Keep all default packages, but add system-config-kickstart.  System reboots
with working X.
3. Open anaconda-ks.cfg in system-config-kickstart and save-as "ks.cfg".  This
changes the format of the file.
4. Reinstall RHEL5 Server on the same machine using "ks.cfg" via http.  System
is missing at least xorg-x11-xinit therefore no X.

The packages section looks like this before and after system-config-kickstart

This may be going on in rhel4 as well, 
here are the package list sections of 2 ks files from our rhel4 installs
1st is from the ks file we use to build the system
2nd is the anaconda.ks.cfg file from the system after it's built
