              The version in the -d option must match up with the isos you pass to the installer (i386 isos) or the wrong list of rpms (and md5sums) are used. This is why some of the rpms are not found.

              Your install command should look something like

              ./installer.pl -i x86world -d RHEL5U6AS_FULL -m /worktmp/rhel-server-5.6-i386-dvd.iso
