I'm not sure why your gui tool isn't working but it's simple enough to use a text editor:

Code:
%packages
@base
screen
-talk
Where the line starting with '@base' is a package group, 'screen' is a package that will be installed and talk will not be installed.

Another option is to install rhel as you want it, after installation /root/anaconda-ks.cfg will have all the settings you used.

cheers
