Description Bill Peck 2008-02-04 16:32:40 EST
Description of problem:
installing via kickstart pops up a message about "Unable to retrieve kickstart
file from http://..."

If I check the servers access_log I can see that anaconda pulled the kickstart file.

When the above error appears you can hit ok a couple of times and then it will
proceed and install like it should.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rawhide-20080204  or Alpha

How reproducible:
Everytime on certain systems, other systems install fine.
It does show up under qemu 
i386 distro works on the same system that fails x86_64.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. You must do a kickstart install on x86_64
  
Actual results:
^[[8;9H| Unable to download the kickstart file.  Please modify the    |^M

^[[9;9H| kickstart parameter below or press Cancel to proceed as an   |^M

^[[10;9H| interactive installation.^[[36C|^M

^[[11;9H|^[[62C|^M
