you can run the buildinstall script, it will point out
some packages requiered for the installation.

from the upd-instroot script (RH9):

[...]

Well, as you can see, some packages here refer to older RH distros
(Xconfigurator for example) so all of them are not needed, you can
also remove some fonts if you don't need them, etc... but this might
help you finding the missing parts ;-)
