kickstart not accepting firewall settings

  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1042, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py", line 1218, in setInstallData
    self.readKickstart(id, self.file)
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/kickstart.py", line 677, in readKickstart

Expected Results:

These settings were created by a successful install. 
It was expected that we would not need to modify the statements in

Additional Information:
this is from the kickstart file: 

firewall --enabled --port=smtp:tcp --port=http:tcp --port=ftp:tcp
Comment 1 Bill Goodrich 2004-03-24 14:01:18 EST
It looks like the format changed. 

Correct format:
firewall --high --smtp --http --ftp --ssh --telnet

I tried this and it worked. 

/root/anaconda-ks.cfg is still being created with the 
old format.
