Description of problem:
After the `detailed' views of package selections, the choices presented by
redhat-config-kickstart seem extremely outdated.  Any chance of getting them in
sync with those offered by the interactive installer?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start an interactive install
2.Think: this is way cool, lemme just install this quickly then use
redhat-config-kickstart to choose the packages carefully while I build some
other stuff.
3.Complete the installation
4.Start redhat-config-kickstart

Actual Results:  Where are all those nice package-selection options available in

Expected Results:  More of the look and feel of interactive installer in

I added the category headers and updated the package groups to match
those of the installer. The problem is that you have to have a comps file
to read all the package names and descriptions and to know which
packages belong in each group. The comps file is in RedHat/base/comps.rpm
on the CDs, but since it isn't part of the installer, we can't require it.

We could use it if it is installed, and default to just the groups
if in isn't. I'm not sure if we will get to this RFE for this release.
Time is short.

This is a dup of an older bug filed.
