Description of problem:
I created a kickstart configuration file based on the anaconda configuration log
after I did a manual install of a server.  The ks.cfg was then put onto a boot

The kickstart process starts successfully and then fails with anaconda
exceptions.  Dump file results produced.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot off floppy with kickstart configuration
2.  Kickstart process fails with anaconda exceptions


Actual Results:  Results in anaconda dump file.

Please attach the ks.cfg config used (removing any private passwords/etc) first.

ks.cfg file

I've tried a number of different variations on ks.cfg.	They all failed with
the exact same error at the same point.  This is the last version I used.

Your ks.cfg is broken.  You have part /boot.1, part /boot.2 etc and
these must be part raid.foo instead.
