 More detail.

 With the kickstart config I've always used, which includes "selinux --enforcing",
 I get

audit(1270043018.724:2): enforcing=1 old_enforcing=0 auid=4294967295 ses=4294967295
Unable to load SELinux Policy. Machine is in enforcing mode. Halting now.
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

 when the installer reboots. The same thing happens when I explicitly add
 the selinux-policy package to the kickstart config.

 When I add selinux-policy and selinux-policy-targeted, the installer hangs
 on installing selinux-policy-targeted.
