Installing genhdlist to Allow Patching
For each new major version of RH you must extract the genhdlist tool from the anaconda runtime RPM for that version. You can install the RPM and then copy it into /ks/bin/ OR you can extract it with rpm2cpio:
genhdlist (probably means 'generate header list' from RPM-speak) is a utility that manages the installer 'hdlist*' files, using the comps (or components) file that is now an xml file. These files are found in RedHat/base/ on the CD images.
My perl update script uses genhdlist to update properly the install file tree.
