I'm experiencing the same problem described here
whereas I have 'keyboard us' in my kickstart config yet am prompted to
pick a keyboard type during the install.
This only happens on serial installs, text and graphical both go hands
As you might imagine this is a real annoyance when loading multiple
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. kickstart with the following options
append ksdevice=eth0 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,19200 load_ramdisk=1
2. watch for the 'What type of keyboard do you have?' question
3. become annoyed :)
Actual Results: Prompts for keyboard, upon selecting one it continues
the install hands free as it should.
Expected Results: barring any configuration errors, pxe boot to post
install should be hands free.

Okay, will be fixed in FC4 then.
