Description of problem:

I did a successfull install from the RH8.1beta Cd roms and used the generated
anaconda-ks.cfg file as basis for my NFS network boot kickstart. Strangely did
it in the second install using the recorded anaconda-ks.cfg file come a problem
with packages needed for install.

I did this several times with the same result.

As a solution did I find the --resolvdeps parameter in the man page and that
helped me. But should not all installed packages be in the log file?
