You need to do:

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/anaconda
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist /path/to/tree/i386 --withnumbers
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/pkgorder /path/to/tree/i386 i386 Fedora >
          /path/to/tree/i386/Fedora/base/pkgorder.txt
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist /path/to/tree/i386 --withnumbers \
         --fileorder=/path/to/tree/i386/Fedora/base/pkgorder.txt

(Um, or maybe that's /path/to/tree/i386/os -- I can't remember if that's
required for the FC structre, offhand.)

But....

For your case, I think the yum install commands are the better approach. I'd
try and figure out why they're not working.
