Line 54 and 58

# create necessary directories/files
if [ ! -d "$HOME"/Desktop -a -d /etc/skel/Desktop ]; then
  tar cpf - -C /etc/skel Desktop | tar xfp -C "$HOME" -

if [ ! -d "$HOME"/.kde -a -d /etc/skel/.kde ]; then
  tar cpf - -C /etc/skel .kde |tar xfp -C "$HOME" -

tar cpf - -C /etc/skel Desktop | tar xfp -C "$HOME" - give :
tar: -C: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

It seams it should be :
tar cpf - -C /etc/skel Desktop | tar xfp - -C "$HOME"

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

Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "CURRENTRELEASE" for now.
