RedHat/base/hdlist is the file that needs to be regenerated any time
you change the contents of the RedHat/RPMS/ directory(ies).

This file is a database generated by the genhdlist utility (which
you'll now find in the anaconda package).

However, if _all_ you changed was RedHat/base/comps (and the result
was syntaticly and logically correct), then I would suspect that the
error isn't related to that change.

However, you don't desctibe what sort of runtime error message you
are getting from the installer.

Perhaps you are removing a package that the installer itself expects
to be there for it to use?  If this is the case, then simply rpm -e
--nodeps any unwanted packages in the %post section.
