install.log: /boot/efi/initrd-2.4.9-0.4smp.img already exists

* French NFS Full Workstation GUI install
Installation de kernel-smp.
/boot/efi/initrd-2.4.9-0.4smp.img already exists.
Installation de kernel.
/boot/efi/initrd-2.4.9-0.4.img already exists.
This occurs because autopartitioning does not set /boot/efi to be
reformatted. Hence the old images are still there.
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg needs to use mkinitrd -f
I was just maintaining what was being used in the kernel %post. Arjan, was
there a specific reason -f wasn't being used in the kernel %post?
-f is not used to avoid overwriting initrd's that sysadmins carefully
I don't think we need to be blowing away things the sysadmin created... /boot/efi
should be formatted; that was the real problem here.
I'm closing this; hopefully anaconda sets the format bit correctly by default
for new installs now. If the users turns that off, this is reasonable behavior,
