Description of problem:

While an x86_64 RHEL6 PV Xen guest can be created with virt-manager,
all attempts to do so with an x86 RHEL6 x86 PV guest fail.  
Presumably this could be a virt-manager or virt-install issue,
but they both seemt to work fine, but when anaconda runs, it
causes the console screen to "go black" if virt-manager is used, or
causes an anaconda exception if the virt-install CLI is used.  
The anaconda exception xml is attached, but has this message
at the top:

The following was filed automatically by anaconda:
anaconda 13.21.54 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/yuminstall.py", line 1946, in writeKS
    if repo.excludepkgs:
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/instdata.py", line 276, in writeKS
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 66, in writeKSConfiguration
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 208, in moveStep
    rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 126, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 657, in run
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1106, in <module>
AttributeError: 'AnacondaYumRepo' object has no attribute 'excludepkgs'

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

host: x86_64 running 2.6.18-194.el5xen 
guest: x86 x86 2.6.32-37.el6 (attempted)

How reproducible:

With virt-manager, anaconda doesn't start (screen goes black)
With virt-install, anaconda exception (xml file attached)
