RE: RHEL 4.2 Anaconda problems

Thanks Sebastien.  This looks like fixed the problem... whatever it was.  

So in RHEL 4.2 x86_64 you must run pkgorder followed by genhdlist.  In RHEL 2.1 you didn't have to run pkgorder to add packages.

>From what I've learned, there are two tricks. The first one is that you
must run genhdlist, then pkgorder, then again genhdlist:

    $ genhdlist $RHDIST
    $ pkgorder $RHDIST i386 [list of groups to prioritize] >pkgorder.txt
    $ genhdlist --fileorder pkgorder.txt $RHDIST

The second trick is that if you use buildinstall to regenerate the
installation disk images, it itself re-runs pkgorder, hence ignoring
the groups you wanted to prioritize. What I do is save a copy of
the pkgorder.txt file before running buildinstall, then copy it back.
