A bare minimal install of Fedora with networking support.

This is a minimal Fedora installation which just include the minimal
core package group, corresponding to the minimal package group install option in Anaconda.
It is intended for users who want to easily do smaller custom installations by hand
or developers who need a minimal environment for development and testing, etc.
Benefit to Fedora
This spin provides an simple alternative to minimal net installs, and because of the small number of packages contained hopefully should be more stable during the development cycle than larger spins.
It often happens in Rawhide that breakage prevents larger spins from composing or booting: hopefully this minimal spin will be available more of the time during the development cycle, allowing for more testing of Rawhide early on.
This is derived from fedora-live-base.ks, which can now be simplified by including this kickstart file.
ISO Name / FS Label
ISO name: Fedora-17-$(arch)-Minimal FS-Label: Fedora-17-$(arch)-Minimal.
Scope / Testing
No special requirements
The smallest Fedora Spin.
A minimal installation of Fedora useful for customization by hand and development work. It provides a self-contained alternative to doing a minimal net installation.
Same as for standard spins.
Can work with Branding team on this.
