ks=floppy fails, can't find /tmp/ks.cfg

In beta3, passing ks=floppy, loader can't find the kickstart file. This
happens on both partitioned and unpartitioned LS-120s. Putting the ks.cfg
inside the initrd still works.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put a ks.cfg file on an LS-120 (such as from images/boot.img)
2. Boot the CD, eli linux ks=floppy
3. Watch the installer die as it can't find ks.cfg.
Actual Results: ks.cfg wasn't found and used.
Expected Results: ks.cfg should have been found.
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
I'm guessing it's because ide-floppy is a module and it's not
on the boot disk. Oops.
Will be fixed in next kernel build.
