how do i install package groups with up2date in RHEL AS 4

using up2date from the command line, there is an option to show groups

up2date --show-groups

i assume this shows groupings of packages from the comps file

i know when using kickstart, to install package groups you specify in ks.cfg



@ KDE etc. etc.

can up2date be used to install package groups also?

I have tried-->

up2date --install @ GNOME
up2date @ GNOME
up2date @ GNOME Desktop Environment

etc. etc. but states the following package you requested is not found

thnks in advance
