Description of problem:
During a kickstart or manual installation of the July 29th 2001 rawhide
release the installer stops running while doing a package scan. The
complaint seems to be about the redhat-release package.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grab rawhide july 29th release
2. try to install it

Actual Results:  Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 608, in ?
    intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 348, in run
    self.icw.run (self.runres, configFileData)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 775, in run
    self.setup_window (runres)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 755, in setup_window
    self.setScreen ()
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 502, in setScreen
    (step, args) = self.dispatch.currentStep()

  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 139, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 204, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 102, in readPackages
    id.comps = method.readComps(id.hdList)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 17, in readComps
    return ComponentSet(self.tree + '/RedHat/base/comps', hdlist)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 771, in __init__
    self.readCompsFile(file, self.packages)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 558, in readCompsFile
    self.expressions[packages[l]] = None
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 152, in __getitem__
    return self.packages[item]
KeyError: redhat-release

Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <comps.HeaderListFromFile instance at 843f260>
item: redhat-release

Expected Results:  installation would ideally continued and completed

The rawhide installer is never guaranteed to work.

In any case, the particular problem (rawhide comps looking for redhat release
instead of rawhide-release) should be fixed in the next tree.
