The comps file is what lists 'components'.  When you ask for a
component like networking the install will look into this to know not
only the primary packages affected but also the software like the libc
who is needed by the primary ones and so on.

What is happenning is that you are using an installer (6.1) with a
differnet distribution so the foarmat of the comps file is not what is
expected by the parser (6.0).
