--onpart is know to have issues in 6.2.

I will investigate your particular case.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-06-22 19:27:21 UTC
Did you have a clearpart directive in your ks file?

It won't generally work to have clearpart specified and try to use --onpart on
a logical partition, since if any logical partitions preceeding the logical
partition are removed then the numbering is all screwed up.
