The trick here is to remove one (or more) unneeded modules from the
floppy.  This requires playing with the modules.cgz file, along with a
couple other files that list the drivers on the floppy.

You might want to ask this on kickstart-list at redhat.com or
anaconda-list at redhat.com, as these are better places for this specific
issue, and have many people who have done this sort of thing before.
