There's no way to do that,  You just go through them 1 by 1. And it's not 
the same as an everything install. I did it with FC5-T2 and found there 
were over 800 packages from the iso's not installed even though I checked 
everything manually.

Not with a new release, FC1-4 just installed everything when you asked it. 
No conflicts that I can remember. Even when you did an NFS install from 
an updated tree.

FC-5 has problems with GFS package conflicts and some others but that's a 
distribution problem not a problem with an everything install.

That's exactly right. What would be very useful is an "Everything Install" 
that installed everything but only the languages and locales you have 

But this battle has already been lost on another list ;-(
