Hi.  We use the appliance-tools provided by the thincrust.net site.  They 
have done a bit of package refactoring and moved the kickstart file 
(base-pkgs.ks) to a new aos package.  However, this package has not yet 
made its way into Fedora updates.

The thincrust folks will be providing us a package shortly that should 
work out this dependency.  I've cc'd Bryan of the thincrust team in case 
there are other questions/issues.
