I've experienced the same bug with kickstart over NFS in Redhat 8.0, forcing me
to install by hand. There's no point in having a 'kickstart' program if it
doesn't work.

I add the first few lines of my anaconda dump:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 694, in ?
    intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 446, in run
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 150, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 215, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 121, in readPackages
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py", line 1119, in setGroupSelection
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/comps.py", line 580, in __getitem__
    return self.compsDict[key]
KeyError: Minimal

Thanks for your prompt attention.
