I started wondering why I saw galeon in the package list and a little
experimenting showed me I did something silly: I did a nfs install from
a directory which not only contained the severn isos, but also the
RedHat 9 isos. So I guess anaconda read all of them and presented a
combined list of packages, or something like that. When doing a cd-based
install, or nfs after moving the isos to different subdirectories, the
package selection was as it should be, and galeon was gone. 
So I apologize for the confusion (but at least i learned something
interesting about the installer).
