Er, s/Datacenter/Colo/  What if it's just my box there, I'm not going to 
hassle with setting up my laptop to be a kickstart server to reinstall one 
system or two.  My laptop might be the install source, but not a full blown 
kickstart box.

Doesn't this seem backwards to you?  Have anaconda run through, do all the dep 
checking, pull all the packages down and install them, then remove half of it 
(redoing dep checking), get a new list of packages to install, dep check 
again, download some more, and then install again?
