Not much help, but I'm running into the same thing.  I rebuilt the kernel 
RPMS in order to patch in Speakup, http://linux-speakup.org/, and rebuilt 
the installation image using Forest's patch to buildinstall with the 
following command-line.
/root/bin/buildinstall --pkgorder /tmp/pkgorder.txt --comp /home/wacker/yarrow/i386/Fedora/base/comps.xml --version 1 \
--release "Fedora Core 1" --product "Fedora Core" --prodpath Fedora /home/wacker/yarrow/i386

     So, now there are at least two of us.  Does anyone have any ideas?
