I'm not sure where to file this since there isn't
a particular Kickstart section.

Kickstart is unable to correctly configure hard disks over
6.0 GB.

 I don't know the why, but fdisk can't directly handle disks
over 6G (cylinders over 1024)  and one must manually set the
number of cylinders.  (in fdisk, "x", "c", "# of cylinders",
"r") That's not your bug, but
there is no direct way to set this via Kickstart, limiting
it's use.

boot into the install with "linux hda=ccc,hh,ss".  This should allow
kickstart and the installer to do the right thing.
