Fedora Rescue, Enabling Network, and running RPM or Yum....

As far as I know, no one has said anything about using Fedora
Rescue, enabling the network, and run yum or rpm for installing
or removing packages.

I have tried this a couple of times (and today in fact), and found
that in attempting to do so results in the failure of scripts being
executed pre and post installation or removal of packages.  I
assume this has something to do with python and/or the environment
variables not setup for this purpose or maybe multiuser mode is
required under these conditions?

I noticed that I had 2 versions of Kudzu installed in my system:


So, I attempted to remove the newest kudzu, because I believed
that it is responsible for the hanging at the boot message: 
"Checking for hardware changes".

I am trying to figure out how to revert back to a previous kuzdu
version by running yum or rpm removing the 3-1 version but was
unable to do so under the Rescue Disk environment.

Please let me know what I can do at this point as I have
just given up for now.
