[CentOS] 4.4 kickstart issues

Greetings all,

I'm trying to create a CentOS 4.4 kickstart CD (not a network install), 
duplicating what
I've done for Fedora Core 3.

I am having a cirular dependency for initscripts, which causes 
initscripts not to be installed
(no /etc/inittab when the boot gets to INIT)

The cascade is:

initscripts-7.39.25.EL-1.centos4 requires /sbin/nash
/sbin/nash is in mkinitrd-4.2.1.8-1
mkinitrd-4.2.1.8-1 requires dev
dev appears to be in udev-039-10.15.EL4
udev-039-10.15.EL4 requires hotplug
hotplug requires initscripts-7.93.14.EL

I'm guessing that the hotplug spec file is wrong.  I can build my own 
version and continue finding
conflicts (like the circular dependency between cracker and 
cracker-dict, for example), but my
real question is, how is your iso distribution able to install with this 
initscripts conflict?

Thanks
