i don't understand how the rpm dependencies could end up putting comps so 
far down the list.  i just checked for requirements dependencies and 
nothing seems to show up.  doesn't the rpm system under anaconda know what 
packages are on what disks and build the transaction to cope with that?

i do usually use network installs, but sometimes i'm in the field and 
don't have that luxury.
