Actually I should have been more clear. The above command works fine but when I try to actually use
my new iso image - all goes well up to the point where the repo is needed and I get an error message
from anaconda saying it can find the repo.

I did get it to work by going back and doing the build of the 6.x iso under CentOS 5.x and all worked.
