Hello Chris,

I've run into something like this before ... make sure the packages you add
have filenames consistent with their internal package names. Anaconda isn't
smart enough to tell that 'foo.rpm' and 'foo-1.2rc.rpm' are the same thing.

gedhdlist spits out a ton of stuff while it operates, so make sure it doesn't
yield any critical errors. A script posted here may also be useful:
